When I lived in New England, I loved apple picking and choosing from all of the wonderful varieties. In fact, it was something that I got to do in September. Baked apples don’t seem so suited to September in the South. Actually, in Georgia, it seems like the orchards don’t have the same selection. (Luckily, we do have a great collection of peach choices.) In Connecticut, during college, I used to go to the orchard with friends, and we’d bake apple crisp at the house of the person with a oven. I guess I need to track down that recipe! (In fact, I’ve emailed the recipe holder because he also had an amazing Goulash recipe.) While this super easy, slow cooker baked apples certainly isn’t his apple crisp, it does bring back those flavors of New England. It’s also such an easy dinner to make for guests because it takes only a few minutes to prepare, and looks impressive on the dinner table!
