homemade applesauce

Saturday, after running around all day, I came home and tried my hand in homemade applesauce. It was extremely easy and made our apartment smell delicious. 

I used 5 different apples, 8 total
sliced them (I left the peels on, and it makes the applesauce have a little crunch)
throw them in a crock pot
add a 3 inch cinnamon stick
4 tsp of brown sugar
lemon peel
1 tsp lemon juice
cook low for 5 hours. I used my meat masher to mash. stir every hour. 

of course remove the cinnamon sick when it is finished, lemon peel is ok to keep in.
