Mocktoberfest Applesauce

We've had a couple people ask about making the applesauce.

It's incredibly simple.

12 apples peeled and sliced
½ cup water
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Stir all ingredients together and cook in slow cooker on low for 8 hours (or on high for 3-4 hours).

I recommend stirring the mixture half way through to break up the bigger pieces and pushing the sauce off the sides.
