With all the apples we had around and not enough time to eat them all, I decided to make some slow cooker applesauce. I also threw in some cinnamon since I prefer cinnamon applesauce. You can easily experiment with a variety of different seasonings. I'm thinking I want to try apple pie spice next! Also, just a quick note about the texture - we like it chunky, so I don't bother peeling or pureeing. If you prefer a smoother texture, you could puree the apples before or after cooking. Using a few different varieties of apples helps give your applesauce an extra depth of flavor. Pink Lady's are some of my favorites!
