Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples

I was so excited this weekend to find Michigan apples at our local food co-op! The apples are organic and from Almar Orchards in Flushing, Michigan. We visited Almar Orchards in the fall with our friends Kate and Ross and their son Emerson who is 2 weeks older than Caroline. We had a great time visiting the farm animals, riding around the orchards in the horse-drawn carriage (even though it was raining), and tasting apples and apple doughnuts! I bought two different varieties of apples this weekend, both in 5lb bags - Gold Rush and MacIntosh. Caroline took a MacIntosh apple for lunch today. Tonight I am going to experiment with the apples in my slow cooker and if all goes well, Caroline will have slow cooker cinnamon apples for her lunch tomorrow.
