(1.8kg - about ten medium sized apples)
juice of one lemon
fine sea salt
In the pot of your slow cooker / crockpot place the water, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
Peel, core, and chop your apples. Add to the slow cooker and cover. Set to low for at least 6 hours (I cook for 8).
After the apples have cooked, use a potato masher to puree the mixture into a chunky applesauce. If you prefer smooth, you can blend using a food processor or blender.
Refrigerate for at least four hours before serving.
You can freeze this applesauce in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
