Better than a candle!

On our Apple Fun Day, Quinn and I made homemade applesauce. I always loved making this when I was a "real" teacher and loved making it with my littlest student as well. Sadly, he had more fun making it than eating it, but I think it is SUPER good! I served it over vanilla ice cream. And, I loved the way it made my house smell! :) ... So Fall! ...

No, that's not mashed potatoes with gravy! :) ...

Homemade Applesauce

5-7 apples, sliced and peeled
1 cup of water
Apple Pie Spice
1 cup (or more) of sugar

Slice and peel 5 to 7 apples. (I used mainly granny smith but threw in a gala and a golden delicious!) Pour 1 cup of water into bottom of crock pot. Add apples. Pour in sugar and Apple Pie Spice. Stir and let cook for a few hours on low heat. Stir again. After apples have softened, mash with potato masher. Add more sugar and Apple Pie Spice if needed. Eat plain or serve over ice cream!
