    I mixed it up and put it in a small crockpot. I set it on "high" and left the lid set ajar. I stirred it every half hour or so when I thought about it. After about four hours it had reduced down by about 1/3. I used my stick blender to give it a creamier texture. Great way to use up the large jar of applesauce.
