I followed the recipe as it reads, except I added a little bit of ginger and forgot to cut the strip off the peel. I only have a 6 quart slow cooker so I added a little bit more apple juice (I used apple cider). I was running out of time, so I cooked it on high for 2.5 hours. When the timer went off and I checked to see if it was done, all I had was apple sauce, no pretty stuffed apples as planned for presentation value. Oh well, it still tasted amazing and was great with a little ice cream. Though next time, I will probably just add sliced apples, since coring them is a nuisance.
