today was applesauce and dried apple day. i tried a new method to make the applesauce in the crock pot. it worked lovely. i peeled and sliced the apples, covered the bottom of the crock pot with water, added sugar (about 1/4 cup for every 5 apples) you may want to add more to taste. i also added cinnamon, not sure how much, just covered the top of the apples. i let those suckers cook for about 8 hours and the house could not have smelled more like a home. it was lovely. the dried apples were just peeled, sliced, and put in the dehydrator. we like to eat dried apples for snacks and use them for dried apple pies. you should really try the applesauce. it was really easy and the smell in the house was so worth the little effort that it took.
