Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 4 hours
Makes: 4 to 5 cups
- 7 large apples (I used 4 golden delicious, 1 mutsu, 1 pippin, and 1 fuji apple)
- 1 tsp cinnamon (Organic Cinnamon)
- 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg (ground nutmeg works also) (Organic Nutmeg)
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves (Organic Cloves Ground)
- 1/4 tsp ground allspice (Organic Allspice Ground)
- Chop the apples into fairly thin slices. I peeled about 4 of the apples and left the skin on 3 of them.
- Place the apples and spices in a slow cooker, and set it on low for 4 hours.
- When the apples are done, take an immersion blender and blend the apples until it turns into a smooth sauce. You can also blend everything in a blender, but I was too lazy to do that.
- Enjoy it warm or refrigerate it for 2 weeks!
