Slow Cooker Apple Ginger Compote

This simple, seasonal recipe is made in the slow cooker, so hands-on time is minimal, making the extra effort for homemade apple compote worth it for the superior flavor and texture over storebought. Tart apples such as Granny Smith, Pink Lady, or Macintosh hold up well in this preparation.

As a dessert, serve the healthy compote warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and crisp gingersnap cookies. Or, if you are feeling especially creative, skip the embellishments and serve the sweet apples over savory pork chops. Either way, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.
