Healthy Slow Cooker Cran-Apple Applesauce

After making some delicious Homemade Applesauce, I wanted to try making an applesauce with a slight twist. I added dried cranberries (Craisins) and added a splash of cranberry juice. To make it healthy, I used Diet Cranberry juice (only 5 calories per 8-oz serving), and I also added some cinnamon- nothing too overpowering but wanted a slight hint of cinnamon taste. I loved tasting the dried cranberry sweetness with my apples!

7 medium apples- a mixture of Jonagolds, Honeycrisp, and Red Delicious
Juice of 1 lemon
6-oz (1/2 bag) of Craisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup Diet Cranberry juice

1. Coarsely chop the apples, and place into the stoneware.
2. Add lemon juice, Craisins, cinnamon, and cranberry juice.
3. Toss well to combine.
4. Cook on Low 6-7 hours or High 3-4 hours.
5. Mash apples with potato masher.
