Slow Cooker Apple Pie Filling
Serves: Makes about 6 cups
  • 8 baking apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (I recommend Gala or Fuji)
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, ghee, or coconut oil
  • Full-fat coconut milk for serving, optional
  1. Toss together the apples, honey, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a slow cooker. Dot with the butter or coconut oil. Cover and cook on High for 2½ to 3 hours, until the apples are tender. With a slotted spoon, remove the apples from the cooking liquid.
  2. Carefully transfer the cooking liquid to a saucepan. Reduce the cooking liquid by simmering it over medium heat; it will take just a few minutes. The cooking liquid should reduce in volume by about ⅔ and should resemble syrup. If desired, stir in another tablespoon of cold butter, ghee or coconut oil for a richer dessert.
  3. Pour the reduced liquid over the apples. Top coconut milk if desired.
