To prepare the apples.

  • Cut the very top from the apples.
  • Use a melon baller to remove the core of the apple, leaving the base intact.
  • Take a knife and lightly score the skin around the circumference of the apples.
  • Spoon the filling mixture into the apple, really packing it full and pushing it down.
  • Place the apples in the slo cooker ensuring they are not touching the edges.
  • Pour the boiling water around the apples and cook on high for 2 1/2 hours.
  • Serve with cream and spoon over the cooking juices.


  1. For a homemade pumpkin spice:
    • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon ground cloves

    • Mix together and store in a jar (this makes more than you need for this recipe!)
