I have recently found a new apple, new to me anyway, called Honey Crisp. They are sweet like a red delicious and crunchy like a granny smith. They are on the expensive side though… Since I found them in the winter, I am hoping that come summer and fall they will be a little cheaper. Anyway, I found them at Costco for a good price. Of course the good price was not so good since there were too many apples for me to eat… So I went in search of something to make with them.
I found this recipe (& pic) on the blog how sweet it is and since I love using my slow cooker I thought this was perfect to try. The smell of apples and cinnamon has been filling the house all afternoon making me hungry! It was delicious but VERY sweet. This coming from someone who LOVES anything sweet, even the super sweet frosting on bakery cakes! We did not add the ice cream although it would have been good it would have made me sick. I think the next time I make this I will use (only a little) less sugar and possibly use granny smiths to give it little tang to it. For normal people I think you could easily get six servings out of this maybe more if you add ice cream but for people like me whose servings tend to run on the larger size, you can get four.
I will be making this again! If you give it a try let me know what you think.
