  • Place apples in slow cooker in thirds, layering sugar between each layer.
  • Add rest of ingredients on top and pack them down as well as you can.
  • Cover and cook on high for 1 hour.
  • Reduce heat to low. Open and give it a stir. Keep covered and cook 8 hours or until thick and dark brown, stirring occasionally. (You can do this overnight and can in the morning).
