Frankie's comment on the recipe post below, this dessert was going to turn out like "apple pie without the crust".
After I got home from work, I peered into my crock and was so disappointed to see my tasty looking apples turn into a mushy, murky-colored liquid; it was like a runny apple sauce.
However, looks can be deceiving!
This dessert was incredible! Full of flavor and simply scrumptious!! I served with all the recommended: vanilla ice cream, toasted almonds, whip cream and extra cinnamon.
Did I cook this too long? Maybe I cut the apples too small like I did with the sweet potatoes in the Traditional Beef Stew recipe. I have heard people say you have to build a relationship with your appliances in the kitchen. For example, I know my oven only cooks evenly if I place the pan over to the left, just a smidge. More experimenting with the crock is the best answer!
