Perfect Fall Recipe: CrockPot Apple Sauce

Not much beats homemade apple sauce and making it in the crockpot will make the house smell heavenly and feel just like fall.  Plus, using the crockpot is a great way to make a healthy snack without a lot of work. Apple sauce is a wonderful snack.  Its texture and sweetness make it a comfort food – reminding us of childhood.  For me, it brings me back to my grandparent’s kitchen.  My grandpa always had a big pot of apple sauce going.  I think if he was able to try my version, he’d be impressed.
