Crockpot Strawberry Applesauce

Cooking is one of my happy places. I had a friend give me ALOT of apples and I did not know what to do with them.I went on Pinterest and started looking up some recipes that have apples include. You know there are lots of recipes. I decided on one of them for standard applesauce but decided to make it my own. My daughter seemed to enjoy it (kid approved).  The recipe is located below if you want to make yourself.

Crockpot Strawberry Applesauce

6-8 Apples ( you can make use any apple that you want, Gala are the ones that I used)
4-8 Strawberries ( you can use any fruit that you like or just make plain applesauce)
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 water
1/4 lemon juice

Add all the ingredients to the Crockpot. Cook on high for 2-3 hours, until the fruit is failing apart. One done, mash the fruit with a potato masher or a fork. Take an immersion blender and blend the fruit until smooth or the consistency you like, sometimes I like mine a little chunky.  Enjoy!

You can freeze the applesauce for about 2-3 months in a Ziploc bag.  To defrost, you can place in the microwave for about 20-40 seconds.
