Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples

Cook Time

Prep timeCook timeReady inYields

25 min

2 hours

2 hours 25 min

12 servings

Ingredients

  • 9 tart apples, Jonathan apples are a great choice
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar, less if you use sweet apples
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, it is better to use too much than too little
  • 1 1/2 Tablesppon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 Tablespoons flour
  • 6 Tablespoons butter, sliced

Instructions

  1. First, peel apples. (If you would like to add nutrients to your dish, skip this step.)
  2. Second, core and slice apples. The larger the slices, the more intact the apples will be. With smaller slices, you'll end up with a smoother mixture that has apple chunks.
  3. Put apple slices into a Crock-Pot.
  4. Add all ingredients, except butter.
  5. Then mix so that it coats all the apple slices with the mixture.
  6. Place butter on top in several slices.
  7. Place Crock-Pot on high and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. (You may also place it on low for 4 hours.)
  8. Halfway through, stir the mixture, making sure to scrape the bottom as a darker mixture will sink to the bottom.
  9. Cool slightly, serve, and enjoy!

Yes, definitely. Especially if the apples are sweeter.

This is a lot of sugar. Could less be used?

Not a real fan of the fresh apple, but cooked apples (like dutch apple pie) I can handle! This was a very well written hub and very informative. Thank you for sharing and my husband wants me to make this

How clever is this. Love those crock pots. And apples fixed this way sounds yummy. Funny I came across this just at this moment; am making a pork roast in my crock pot today. So I will make one or two apples in my mini crock pot as apples with pork are such great complements. thanks for sharing this with us. ps

Although it has the healthful apples, it does have a lot of sugar.

This recipe sounds very flavorful! I love the taste and the aroma of apple and cinnamon, and the butter sounds like a lovely addition. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Granny Smiths are probably a good choice.

I'm not so sure this is really a healthy alternative, but it does have apples!

Peter from New York on October 24, 2012:

Love apples and using a crock pot! I might use Granny Smiths with this one.

Alecia Murphy from Wilmington, North Carolina on October 24, 2012:
