Homestyle applesauce you make in your slow cooker! It doesn't get any easier or more delicious than this!

8 to 10 medium cooking apples, peeled and diced (Jonagold, Jonathan, or McIntosh)
1/2 cup water
1/4 to 3/4 cup raw sugar, depending on the sweetness desired
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)

In a slow cooker or an Instant Pot, using the slow cook function, combine the apples and water.

Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or until the apples are very soft.

Stir in the sugar, add the cinnamon if using, and cook on low for another 30 minutes.

This recipe will make about 4 cups of applesauce.

Note: The applesauce comes out slightly chunky. If a smoother sauce is preferred, use an Immersion Blender or a Sieve to achieve the desired consistency.
