super easy apple sauce for someone who hardly cooks.

In an attempt to get my kids to eat apple sauce and to not allow any of my apple spoils to in fact, spoil, I thought apple sauce was in order.

You need:
8 cups of peeled and sliced and cored apples
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I would put in a bit more because I love cinnamon)

Combine everything you have in a crock pot if you own one of those foul things or in my case I used a dutch oven. On low for about an hour until the apples were soft. I think a crock pot might take many hours more. Our potato masher is on the fritz (Pampered Chef and quality - ahem) so I just used a fork until it was all a nice consistency. Wala. 

Easy. Peasy.
