A Family Favorite

Sunday . . . a special day . . .  with time set apart for worship, rest, family, and friends.  My extended family met this morning – bright and early – for breakfast at Egg Harbor Restaurant, compliments of my generous parents.  After that, we went to church and shared communion with yet another extended family – a family into which we’ve been adopted through faith in Christ.

However you’re spending today and whoever you’re spending it with, I hope your day is meaningful and restful.   Sunday, for me, is often a good day to reflect on the previous week and give some thought to the coming one.   Sometimes, I pull out recipes that I’d like to try.  If you happen to be pondering what  dishes you’ll prepare for your family this week, here’s one to consider.  It’s a favorite of ours.  And it’s very easy.


1. Cut up 10 large apples (peel, core, and slice into chunks) and place them in the bottom of your crockpot.

2. Mix 3/4 cup sugar with 1 tsp. cinnamon.

3. Add 1/2 cup water to the sugar/cinnamon mixture.

4. Pour sugar/cinnamon/water mixture over the apple chunks, and stir.

5. Cover crockpot, and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.

6. Smash the cooked apples a little with a potato masher or large spoon, and serve warm.  (Or refrigerate, and serve later.  It freezes well, too.)

The above recipe serves 4-5 people, so I often double it.  It’s a hit with company.
