Recipe by "Food:The Way To Anyone's Heart"
This is my (honey's) husband's specialty! Once you try this applesauce, you'll never buy it in the supermarket again! The recipe can be doubled if you have a large size crockpot. Remember that apples shrink down with cooking.

When I make applesauce (which isn't incredibly often) I use this recipe. I have never used honey, and I have found that 1/2 cup of sugar is plenty sweet for me (I usually buy no sugar added applesauce though). I like the chunky texture of this, and the homemade taste is a treat. Also my copy of this says to use a 3 1/2 qt. slow cooker. I recently made a double batch and it fit in my 5 qt. cooker. I had to squish a bit at first, but by the end it was only 1/2 to 3/4 full, so it worked out well.
- 8 -10 large cooking apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup honey or 1⁄2-1 cup sugar
