My dear friend Mary posted this recipe and I’ve used it before. Delicious apples for an accompaniment to pork dishes, as a dessert or snack, and delicious on ice cream. Like apple pie without the crust or added calories.
2-6 apples, depending on how many you want. I used 5 today; a combination of Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Jonathan.
grated nutmeg, optional but adds a delicious extra flavor
pat of butter
I like to peel the apples, but you don’t have to. Wash them well. Cut into wedges and remove the core.
Place the apple slices in a greased crock pot. I have a small one that works perfectly for this.
Put half the apples in, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, add the additional apples, and sprinkle on more cinnamon and sugar. The amount is up to you. I use about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon altogether and about 3 T. sugar. I add a small amount of freshly grated nutmeg over the apples, too. Just a few slides up and down the microplane grater. Top with a pat of butter.
Cook on high for two hours or low for four hours. After two hours on high, the apples were perfect. After I had lifted the crock pot lid and stirred the apples to check them, DD hollered from the other room, “I smell deliciousness!”
They were wonderful on vanilla ice cream, BTW.
