I always tell my kids that we're preparing a "mystery" food. I bring in the apple peeler/corer machine and allow the kids to peel the apples and add to the crockpot. I then pour in a small bag of redhots. That's it. I guess the redhots give it the sugar and cinnamon it needs to be so great. The kids go back to their seats and write and draw about what they think the mystery food will be. Strangely enough, no one has ever guessed that it will be applesauce. They guess candy apples every year though along with several other guesses.
Each child peels/slices/cores one apple that they brought in using the coring machine. I add just about maybe 1/4 cup of water to keep it from sticking initially to the crock pot. Remember the apples will have water that cooks out of them. I add one large bag of redhots. That's the recipe. Very simple... very tasty! I cook it all day in the crock pot and serve it up.
