I've been busy enjoying the autumn season, and have composed blog posts in my head about what I've been doing, but I don't think I have been very good at capturing all those moments with my camera. I think my attempts have been a little sketchy.
I'll start with one that looks pretty complete- Homemade Crock-pot Applesauce
I don't like applesauce that is too sweet, so when I make mine I don't use any sugar. I just throw the apple slices into the crock-pot with lots of cinnamon and a little nutmeg (of course, because I hail from from the Nutmeg State) and I cook it on the low setting for about 4 hours. Then I drain off some of the excess juice and stir the apples just a little to mash them a bit, but not too much because I like it a bit chunky. It's so good when it still warm, a real autumn comfort food!
