12 cups pared, cored, thinly sliced, cooking apples
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinammon
1 cup water
1 Tbsp lemon juice
fresh grated nutmeg, optional
Place apples in slow cooker. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Mix with apples. Stir in water and lemon juice, and nutmeg. Cover. Cook on low 5-7 hours or on high 2 1/2-3 1/2 hours. Stir with a wire whisk for a chunky sauce. Serve hot or cold.
This recipe is similar to the other applesauce I did a while back, and just as good. The apples cooked all day and at the end of the day I was able to take a whisk and stir it into a semi-chunky sauce. If you wanted a more smooth sauce, use the blender. 4 stars.
