Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

4 lb Golden Delicious apples, peeled
2 cups apple cider
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon alspice
3 cups sugar

Cut the peeled apples into quarter and combine in a crockpot or slow cooker with the cider.  Place lid on cooker and cook apples on low for 10 hours.  Add the spices and the sugar, mixing together well.  Leave the lid off and cook on high for approximately 3 hours until thickened; stir occasionally.  Spoon the hot mixture into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/2-inch of space at the top.  Seal with two piece lids.  Once opened, or any jars that did not seal, should be refrigerated.

Yield: 4 pints or 8 half pints

Delicious with pork chops, etc, on toast or biscuits for breakfast, sprinkled with cinnamon as a snack, or makes a great gift with a pretty ribbon tied around the neck of the jar.
