Okay, if you're reading this and love applesauce you need to make this RIGHT NOW. This was literally heaven as soon as I tasted it. The texture turned out great and the blend of brown sugar and cinnamon was perfect. For the first blog entry of 2010, this dish will be a hard one to top!

6 Granny Smith apples
3 Red Delicious apples
3 McIntosh apples
3/4 cup of light brown sugar
1.5 tablespoons of lemon juice
Cinnamon to taste (several heavy dashes)
Peel and slice your apples, place them in the crock pot.
Pour in the lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
Cook on low for about 4 hours.
Using a potato masher mash up the apples. It will be very juicy and liquid. Turn off the crock pot and allow it to sit for about 30 minutes so it reabsorbs the liquid and thickens. Stir well. Serve warm or chilled.
