Ingredients

  • 6 apples
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup chopped raisin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Method

Core each apple almost to bottom, leaving base intact. Slice off 3/4-inch (2 cm) wide strip of peel around hole at top; trim base to level, if necessary.

In bowl, combine brown sugar, dried cherries, cinnamon and nutmeg; pack into apples. Place in 4- to 5-quart (4 to 5 L) slow cooker. Whisk together apple cider and butter; pour over apples.

Cover and cook on low, basting several times, until wrinkly and very tender, about 3 to 4 hours. Transfer apples to shallow serving dish and keep warm.

Whisk cornstarch with 1 tbsp (15 mL) cold water; whisk into liquid in slow cooker. Cover and cook on high until sauce is thickened, about 15 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let apples and sauce cool separately. Store at room temperature for up to 8 hours or refrigerate in airtight containers for up to 3 days. Rewarm to serve.)

Drizzle sauce over apples.
