We actually make this quite a bit. More often when apples are super cheap of course. I've found that it really doesn't matter what kind of apples you use, it tastes awesome anyway.
This is awesome warm or cold. The kids will put it on top of their ice cream. I'll pour some over some vanilla yogurt.
And then of course, topped with reddi whip works too. :-)
Slow Cooked Applesauce
Adapted from A Year of Slow Cooking
8 - 10 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. brown sugar (or to taste)
1/3 cup apple juice or cider
Mix all together in large crock pot and cook for 4 - 6 hours on low. When tender, mash with a potato masher. Taste and sweeten as desired.
I've made this so many times that I don't even measure anything anymore. It would be hard to mess it up. :-)
