Homemade Applesauce

Several weeks ago, we went to the apple orchard and picked a lot of apples.  We made a whole bunch of applesauce.  We have canned applesauce, frozen applesauce, frozen apple pies, etc.  Here's our very simple recipe for applesauce.

12 cups apples
2 cups sugar
3 T. cinnamon

Wash and core apples.  Cut in half.  You don't need to peel the apples.  Place them in a large crock pot or an electric roasting pan.  Add sugar; more or less depending on how tart the apples are.  Add cinnamon.  Cook for several hours until very soft.  Use a hand blender to make the sauce as smooth as you like it.  We like our homestyle with a few chunks in it.
