I found this recipe in my crockpot cookbook and tried it a couple of weeks ago. It was good, but the apples were VERY soggy after cooking for 6 hours and I only knew what they were because I cut them up and put them in the pot. I would recommend putting the apples in during the last hour of cooking, so they would be tender but not unidentifiable much. Otherwise, very yummy!
