because it smells AWESOME!!!
Right now I'm making applesauce in the crock pot and it smells so good!
My recipe- i just combined a bunch of ones I found on-line:
12 red delicious apples (they're naturally sweeter so you don't need much sugar), 1/2 cup of water (some recipes said to use apple juice or didn't call for water at all), some lemon juice, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, couple of tablespoons of brown sugar and lots of cinnamon and some nutmeg- it's been on low all day. I did peal the apples.
I have a feeling Kathryn's going to love it!
