Quarter, peel, and core the apples. Throw them in the cp. Add as much cinnamon as you want, and just a little water. Cook til soft and mash with potato masher. Stir in a little caramel. Voila, caramel applesauce. Shouldn't take more than a few hours.
Or, do the same thing except chop the apples, and don't add any water. You do need to add some sugar. Cook on low for 10 hours, stir well, keep cooking til thickened (the recipe I use says cook on high uncovered for 1 hour). Voila, apple butter. If you don't have sugar you could add some caramel and have caramel apple butter.
Do you have any flour, sugar, oatmeal?
