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.

This is basically an Eating Well recipe with a few Linda touches.

3 lbs sturdy apples such as Granny Smith or Rome
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract

Peel apples and slice into 1/4-inch slices (you should have around 9 cups).  Place apple slices in a 4-quart or large slow cooker or crock pot. Add the sugar and cinnamon; toss to coat well.

Place lid on cooker and cook until apples are very tender and almost translucent but not pureed for 2 to 2 1/2 hours on high or 4 to 4 1/2 hours on low. Stir in the vanilla.

Transfer apples to a bowl and allow to cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.

To serve, place is serving dish and top with ice cream and/or chopped nuts, if desired.
