Homemade Applesauce

So we had another snow day yesterday (yay!).  Since I was up early, I decided to run to the store quick and get some supplies to make homemade applesauce.

Do you have any idea how easy it is to make it in your crockpot?  I had no idea.

So this is all you have to do...

buy or pick some apples (I used Gala)....

peel them....

chop 'em up and throw 'em in the crockpot.....

dump a little water in, sprinkle a little sugar on top, a couple squirts of lemon juice, and put the lid on.  I had my crockpot on high and about 2 1/2 hours later it was ready.

So easy and so good!  I put some on my oatmeal this morning.  My new obsession is this website and all her oatmeal creations.  Who knew there were so many ways to eat oatmeal?

Anyway, back to the applesauce.  I used this site as a guide because I wasn't really sure how to go about making the applesauce.  Easy to follow, she even says it'd be hard to mess up.  And the name of her blog makes me giggle, cuz I'm mature like that (please tell me I'm not the only one).

I never would have thought making applesauce could be so easy. I wish I had some apples at home right now! That is crazy that there is a website dedicated to oatmeal. I love oatmeal!

Yes, I giggled too at the name of that other blog. :)

I haven't tried it in the crockpot but make it a lot for breakfast on the stove, so yummy! We add a little cinnamon to ours.
Thanks for the site for oatmeal, I love it on a cold day!
