Food Friday: Crockpot Apples

This is an easy way to have a yummy side dish or dessert when company is visiting. I've also brought it to potlucks too. When making it for a crowd, I usually double the recipe. It makes a great ice cream or pancake topping too. It can be a bit messy to clean up the crockpot so I suggest a crockpot liner if you have them. It makes cleanup a breeze so you can enjoy more time with your company.

Crockpot "Fried" Apples

3 lbs tart apples, sliced, cored, and peeled
1 tsp cinnamon
1 dash ground nutmeg
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1 cup sugar
2-3 Tbsp butter, sliced into a few thin pieces

Put first 5 ingredients in your crockpot and stir well to coat the apples with the spices. Dot with butter. Cook on low about 4 hours, stirring once during cooking. This should have the consistency of apple pie filling when it is done. Temperatures vary on crockpots so adjust time accordingly.
