3 1/2 lbs of apples....1/2 of that should be Granny Smith. Peel, core and slice all the apples and put into a crockpot. To the crock add~
*3 c sugar
2 tsp cinnamon (I thought it was a bit too much)
1 tsp nutmeg
dash of salt
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cardamom
3/4 c water or apple juice (I used juice)
Mix all inteh crock pot. Put on low and let cook about 8 hours. If it is still runny, take the top off and let cook until thick, stir as not to scorch.
Mash in a blender until chunky or smooth, whatever you prefer. YUM!
The apples just cooked and not blended are very tasty as well. The would make a great ice cream topping. Enjoy~
