CROCKPOT CINNAMON APPLESAUCE: Half of Gabby

Makes 3-4 cups.

WHATCHU NEED:

    5 Pounds of Apples (Any variety or combination)

    1 1/2 TBS Ground Cinnamon

   1/2 tsp Ground Cloves

   1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg

   Stevia packets  *Optional  (I use 3)

WHATCHU DO:

1.  Peel and thinly slice apples.

2.  Pour just enough water in empty crockpot to cover the bottom (approx. 1/3 cup).

3.  Put apples in crockpot.

4.  Add cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and mix well.

5.  Cook on high for 5 hours.

6.  Whisk apples very well until you have applesauce!

7.  Add stevia packets one at a time and taste test. Add until you reach the desired sweetness.

Important Notes

* You do NOT need stevia for this applesauce. It is delicious all on it's own.

* If you prefer your applesauce very smooth, you can puree it in a blender or food processor. However, I would recommend letting it cool down before doing so.

* If you double this recipe, you'll need a 6 quart crockpot.

 * If you prefer regular applesauce, simply follow the above recipe exactly as it is except leave out the cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. 

* 1 Pound of Apples = 4 Small Apples, 3 Medium Apples, or 2 Large ApplesSo for this recipe, you will need: 20 Small Apples, 15 Medium Apples, or 10 Large Apples
