Crock Pot Applesauce

It is not quite fall.  I wish it were.  It has been 122 degrees now for days on end.  Okay not really.  It just feels like 122 degrees when it is only a balmy 110 degrees!  What I am trying to say is it is stinkin' hot in this part of California. 

On a positive note I do live in the agricultural center of the universe.  Spoiled rotten by fresh fruits and veggies year round.  Someone keeps bringing all this fruit from their trees at their house to church.  Bags and bags of apples, peaches, grapes, flats of Roma tomatoes.  Amazing. 

Here is what I made today:


12 cups apple, peeled and sliced (I don't know what kind they are..kinda reddish/green)
1/2 cup sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon

Peel and slice apples, removing seeds and yucky spots.  Toss apples in crock pot with cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Pour over water and lemon juice.  Give it a stir.  Cook on low for six hours.  After six hours or so give it a stir (I used a flat whisk, which seemed to make it smooth right out) and it should just fall right apart into a big batch of applesauce!  How easy was that?
