Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apple Slices

Yum
Cinnamon apple slices cook up so easily in the slow cooker and go with just about anything. Here's my recipe.

There's a chuck roast cooking in my big slow cooker and it smells great. Onions, carrots, and potatoes on the bottom, the roast on top, with a sprinkling of garlic and herb seasoning in the middle. It's been cooking for five hours so far and smells great.

About an hour ago, I decided I was hungry for cinnamon apple slices, too, so I pulled out the small slow cooker along with three apples, a generous sprinkling of cinnamon, a bit of brown sugar, and a shake of cloves. Cinnamon apple slices cook up so nicely in the slow cooker and go with just about anything.

Gotta love it when the slow cookers do all the work and all I have to do is sit back, enjoy the aroma as everything cooks, and serve it all up when it's ready.

Mmmm. Everything smells so, so good!

The picture above shows the apples going in. If I remember, I'll take a picture when they're ready to eat. In the meantime, here's the recipe, the way I fixed them today:

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apple Slices

3 Gala apples (I cook them with the peel on)
brown sugar (2 or 3 tablespoons)
ground cinnamon (a few generous shakes)
ground cloves (just a little bit to make it interesting)

Wash the apples well. Slice and core, then add the apples to the slow cooker crock. Sprinkle the brown sugar, cinnamon, and cloves over the top. Cover and cook on high for two or three hours. Cook longer if you want the apples softer. Serve for any meal, as a side dish with just about anything, or as a snack. 

If you use an apple corer you can have this ready to cook in 5 minutes. Use a larger slow cooker and double or triple the recipe to make more. Adjust the sugar and seasonings to suit your family's tastes.

Two hours to go and our dinner will be ready to serve.

That's what's for dinner at our house tonight. What's for dinner at yours?

  1. We don't eat dinner at night. I made a similar dish in my slow cooker with our own apples and quince. We are due to make another batch this weekend.

    1. So nice you have your own apples, Barbara. My husband has been wanting quince jelly recently. As far as I know, I've never had quince anything, but now you have me very curious to pursue that subject. Enjoy your apples and quince whenever you eat them!

  2. I've never tried anything like this in my slow cooker, thanks Susan I will for sure try this. I just love apples and cinnamon, and always looking for something sweet.

    1. Slow cookers are certainly awesome gadgets! We actually ended up eating this for dessert, warm over vanilla ice cream. Delicious! It was late and I didn't take a picture, but there's still some left in the refrigerator to be heated up so maybe I'll remember then.

  3. We're roughing it as we get through the final days before our Christmas company arrives. Last night we had salmon sandwiches, leftover Greek salad and tomato soup.

    Your supper sounds yummy and these apple slices do, too.

    1. "Roughing it" sounds pretty good to me, Brenda, especially the leftover Greek salad. I could eat that any day. Our supper was, indeed, yummy. Apples, too! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
