Crockpot Chinese Five Spice Applesauce.

Remember last year when I posted this recipe for crockpot applesauce?  Well, this is just an update to that recipe.  I changed up the flavors just a bit with a delicious result.

We finally made it to the apple orchard, and even though we went really late in the season and the trees were mostly bare, we still came away with 18 pounds of apples!  The Fruitaholic had a great time running through row after row of trees, sampling the goods along the way.  And since we were leaving town shortly thereafter, most of those apples went into making this applesauce.  The rest?  Well, we ate those as they were.  :)

I really liked the unexpected flavor that the Five Spice added.  So if you’re looking for something different to do with your applesauce, give this one a try!
