"My apples exploded in the crockpot in just over 2 hrs.!!! Apples went in looking picture perfect, came out like chunky applesauce (complete w/ lg. peel)! Next time I'll try baking in oven. Taste was good, but looked NOTHING like picture."

"Very very good and simple. I didn't have fresh or frozen cranberries, only dried, and it still was wonderful!"

"Delicious!! Since I was running short on time I put the apples in my covered stoneware baker and baked them at 350* for 30 minutes. Very happy with the results, will definitely make these again!"
