Cinnamon Apples

Depending on the type of apple, you may need more or less sugar. Granny Smith (green, very tart) is my usual preference for cooking, but other apples (such as Macintosh) can be good, too. If you mix different types of apples, some may be soft when others are firm. You can also experiment with different sweeteners, such as honey or maple syrup. Vanilla ice cream would be wonderful with these apples.

6 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into eight wedges
1 T. fresh lemon juice
1 T. grated lemon peel
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 T. flour
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
6 T. butter

Place apples in the crock-pot and drizzle with lemon juice. Sprinkle other ingredients over apples; stir gently to coat. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours or on high for 2, stirring occasionally if possible, until apples are done. Serve apples in a bowl, or over ice cream. Sprinkle with toasted nuts if desired.
