Crockpot Applesauce

3-4 lbs. apples, skinned, cored and cut into quarters
juice from 1 lemon
2 sticks cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
brown sugar

Skin, core, and cut your apples into quarters and place in crockpot. Add the juice from the lemon, cinnamon sticks and the water. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally. When the apples are super tender, mash with a potato masher or large fork. If you want it super smooth, use a blender. Add vanilla and sugar to taste at the very end (I end up using about 1/4 cup brown sugar). Mix well to incorporate.

NOTES:This is the best applesauce recipe that I have found, I love it. You can freeze or bottle this if you wish. It only makes about 3-4 pints so you may want to do more since a water bath can hold up to 7 bottles.
