- Pour 1 tablespoon of water into the bottom of the dish and cover with plastic wrap.
- Microwave on high for 4-5 minutes until apple is soft.
- Drizzle with honey or serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Crock Pot Apple Sauce

- Place the apple pieces into a slow cooker with 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 to 1 cup sugar and a teaspoon of cinnamon.
