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.

mmm...I can almost smell the delicious aroma of apples cooking in a crockpot! This is one of my favorite activities to do with my kindergarten class each year during our apple unit. What fun! Also, I wanted to let you know, Le, that I received 16 FREE lightbulbs from Duke in the mail today! (read about the deal on your blog awhile back) It was such a great feeling :) Thanks! -Taylor
