Crockpot Applesauce

I found this recipe on Pinterest but it was for just making a small batch for 4 people to eat for snack. I just took the recipe and made a bigger batch. I also didn't use a caner or a pressure cooker. I've read several places that people put the "food" into the jars hot and then leave them on the counter to seal themselves. I did this and they sealed. I was shocked but SO excited because I love things to be simple.

Crockpot Applesauce
Made 7 Small Jars

Apples - Peeled or not peeled and chopped up
4 Lemons - Juiced
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
4 Teaspoons Vanilla
4 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 Cup Water

Place all ingredients into your crockpot (my crockpot is a 7-quart) if your crockpot isn't this big I would follow the original recipe below and times it by however much you want to make.

Cook in crockpot on low for 4-6 hours. Low on my crockpot is pretty much high and it took about 5 hours to cook.

Once apples are cooked place them into your blender but be sure to only fill blender about 50% so you don't make a mess when blending. Once blended pour into your jars and put the lids on tight. Leave the jars on the counter and they should seal themselves. This happened within about 3 hours for my jars.

Original Recipe:
4 Large Apples
1 Lemon - Juiced
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Water
