Homemade Fall Applesauce

Clearly it's Fall... no matter where you are.  The season of visiting orchards and pumpkin patches.  The weekend before last, my family and I visited one of our favorites, Linvilla Orchard in Pennsylvania.
Of course we left with pounds of apples, pumpkins, apple pie, and apple cider donuts (shhh).  Honestly, I knew I couldn't eat all of these apples, so I started making my favorite apple recipes.  We made apple muffins, apple crisp, and a new recipe... Applesauce!  And since I'm always about getting more bang for your bite, there's a secret ingredient to make it more fall appropriate.  One more bonus, this is a crockpot recipe, so set it, forget it, and your house will smell amazing!!

Homemade Fall Applesauce

8 Apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)
1 c pumpkin puree (unsweetened)
1/2 c Sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
1 c water

Chop some apples into smaller chunks, and leave some as slices.
Place all ingredients in a crockpot, stir.  Cook on high for 3 hrs, or low for 6.
As the apples soften, mash them or use an immersion blender to get applesauce to desired consistency.  Serve with a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top, enjoy!!

Some other variations, could include subbing the pumpkin for blueberries, or strawberries, cranberries...
