Spiced Applesauce!

Today I'm going to make spiced Applesauce - the recipe (from Fix-It and Forget it) says "Kid-Friendly", we'll see!

Spiced Applesauce:

(makes 6 cups)

12 cups thinly sliced cooking apples
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup water
1 tbspn lemon juice
freshly grated nutmeg

1. Place apples in slow cooker
2. combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. stir into apples. stir in water, lemon juice and nutmeg.
3. cover and cook on high 2 1/2 hours - 3 1/2 hours or on low 5-7 hours.
4. stir for a chunky sauce - serve hot or cold

i'm going to try to "can" the applesauce while its still hot. wish me luck!
