I promise, you will never be satisfied with applesauce from a store shelf, ever again. Ready? It's easy.
Fill your crock pot with peeled, sliced apples. One of these doohickeys works wonderfully for coring/slicing/chunking:
Add about 1/2 C water, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, and maybe 1/3 cup of sugar. It depends on your apples and your taste, but you can sweeten more after the apples are done. Now, stir it all up a bit, put the lid on and cook on low all day or until the apples are soft. In about four hours your family will start sniffing and asking you what is that marvelous smell coming from the kitchen. Mash it all up and taste. (Don't burn your tongue.)
Deeeelishus, the taste of autumn and home and love! Serve in a bowl, over pancakes, on biscuits, or on a Dutch baby. Your children will rise up and call you blessed, and your husband also.
