I posted this in the thread about using the crockpot, but I thought it should also be posted under the "fruit, etc." forum. So here it is:
KATIE’S PINK CROCKPOT APPLESAUCE
8 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into fourths
½ cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup tiny red cinnamon candies
¾ cup apple cider
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
In a 3½-quart or larger crockpot, mix all ingredients.
Cover and cook on HIGH for about 1½ to 2 hours or until the apples are just beginning to get tender. Remove lid and stir with a wooden spoon to break up larger chunks. Serve warm or chilled. Note:
This applesauce can be frozen in airtight containers for up to three months.
