This is good on toast or biscuits, as a pancake topping, and even as an ice cream or pound cake topping.
6 large apples, cored, peeled, thinly sliced
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup granulated sugar
Combine all the ingredients together in a slow cooker or crockpot; mix thoroughly.
Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours (high half that long).
Stir the ingredients every couple of hours during the cooking process. After the first 3 hours of cooking, remove the lid. This will allow the steam to escape and the mixture to cook down.
Spoon the mixture into hot sterilized jars and seal with hot sterilized lids. Process a few minutes in a hot water bath if jars do not seal immediately. You will know jars have sealed if they make a popping sound and the lid indents slightly in the center.
