       Crockpot Applesauce with Cranberries
       10-12 medium apples
       1-2 cups cranberry juice
       lemon juice -- use 1/4 to 1/2 lemon
       2 tbs sugar -- or up to 1/4 cup if you want it sweet
       1/4 to 1/2 cup dried cranberries or "craisins" (sweetened dried
       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
