Crockpot Applesauce {Simple & Sugar Free!}

This recipe is one I found on Pinterest, and here is the link to the original recipe.  Since I was doubling it, I used a tablespoon of cinnamon.

8 apples
1/4 c. water
1 T lemon juice
1 T pure vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
(If desired, add sweetener of your choice.)

Core and slice apples into 1" slices.  Just leave the peel on.
Place in a slow cooker.  Add the rest of the ingredients, stir a bit, and cook on low for 4 hours.

Use a potato masher to make chunky applesauce.  Puree in the blender if you prefer a smoother texture.

(On another site, I read that homemade crockpot applesauce would keep in the fridge for 5 days but could also be frozen for up to 3 months.)
