I love letting Little Man help out in the kitchen but sometimes it is difficult to find things for him to do. When I thought about making applesauce I knew exactly what I would let him do. So I got the apple peeler/corer out and let him crank away. He thought it was a lot of fun.
After we finished peeling and coring I cut the apples into smaller chunks and added 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon all to the crockpot. It cooked on low for 7 hours and we had chunky applesauce.
The original recipe came from Oopsey Daisy's A is for Apple Mommy School packet. Her recipe can be found on page 19.
