      This made for a wonderful change of pace from my usual garlic butter. Had an Italian dinner last nite, had earmarked this some time ago, and found it again while looking for something different to make of Sharon's wonderful creations. So I sliced and toasted my bread first and let everybody use the butter. It was a TOTAL hit! I made this in the morning and used my crockpot to slow cook it. I kept strong control over myself as to NOT add any garlic. I did add two packets of Splenda to this as I think my use of Granny Smith apples were a bit too tart with all the acid of the tomatoes. Next time I will use a mix of both sweet and tart apples. I also upped the cinnamon to a full tsp. as I love this flavor. The one thing I did not like about this smelled WAY to good and competed with the rest of my meal.
