Slow Cooked Delicious

Because freshly picked apples in fall never gets old... :)

You will need:
a dozen medium apples (6 red delicious, 6 golden delicious)*
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup apple cider*
2 cinnamon sticks

Wash the apples but do not peel them.  Split them into quarters and thinly slice them, tossing them at random into your crock pot.

Sprinkle over the sugar and combine well.  Pour over the apple cider, then tuck the cinnamon sticks into the apples.

The apples, prior to cooking

Slow cook for 8 hours on low heat, stirring every few hours.

These are delicious as a topping to pancakes or waffles, spooned hot over ice cream, mixed in with yogurt, or served as a sweet side dish.
You can freeze these; reheat by simply adding a splash of apple cider (or water) and bringing up to your desired heat.

*The apples and apple cinnamon are from our local orchard, Tabora Farms (Lansdale and Chalfont)
