Crockpot applesauce with cranberries (vegan)

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
10 12 medium apples
1 To 2 cups cranberry juice
½ Lemon juiced
2 tablespoons Sugar, or up to 1/4cup if
You want it sweet
¼ To 1/2 cup dried cranberries
Or "craisins" (sweetened

Wash the apples and chop them up without peeling. Squeeze lemon juice over them as you cut them.

Put apples in crockpot with cranberry juice -- use 1 cup if you want the applesauce thick, more if you want it thin. Stir in sugar to suit your taste.

Let apples stew on low for 6-8 hours. About an hour or two before serving, stir in cranberries or craisins. (All I found at my store was craisins--since they're sweetened, I used less sugar.) The applesauce is a very pretty pink and the cranberries & juice give it a nice zing.

As you can see, the recipe is simple and forgiving -- let the apples stew a little longer or a little less ~- the longer you stew them the mushier the applesauce will be. It warms up nicely, or you can eat it cold.
