1 1/2 Apple (large, cored and diced)
1/2 serving Cinnamon Stick
1/16 Lemon (juiced)
2 tbsps Water
1. Add chopped apple, cinnamon, lemon juice and water to the slow cooker and stir well to mix. Cook on high for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. (Note: Peeling the apples is optional but not necessary as they will be pureed in step 2.)
2. Remove the cinnamon sticks. Use an immersion blender to puree the applesauce, or transfer to a blender.
3. Divide into bowls, add your preferred toppings and enjoy! Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
Refrigerate in an air-tight container up to 10 days, or freeze up to a year.
