Crockpot Homemade Applesauce

I’ve signed up for a 31 day  writing challenge.  Everyday in October, I am posting a new slow cooker recipe, a link to a previous posted slow cooker recipe, or a link to a recipe from another blog.

The Imaginative One LOVES apples.  Actually that’s understatement, he adores apples and will eat all the way to the core and even around the seeds.  He loves to pack them for lunch.

Since it’s fall, apples are plentiful so I decided I was going to try to make some applesauce in the crock pot.  I’ve made it on the stove so I followed the same method but in the crock pot instead.

While the apples were cooking away, the boys and I went on an adventure.  The Dayton area is where the Wright Brothers lived and tested out the airplane.  I’m so fortunate that I live about 5 miles away from where they tested the airplane after the December 17, 1903 flight.  We went to the Interpretive Center and then down to the Huffman Dam that was built after the Great Flood of 1913.  After we were done with our walk, we drove through the local university because it has beautiful fall foliage especially in one area.
