This recipe couldn't be more simple. I like to put it on ice cream for dessert and use the leftovers for oatmeal the next morning. It's nice to have when company are in town because it doesn't take any babysitting.
3 large apples, cored and chopped
1 c. "Cape Cod cranberry" trail mix (i.e. dried cranberries, raisins, walnuts, dates, and coconut; you can substitute just nuts or dried fruit or leave it out completely)
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1/2 c. water
1 tsp. cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Microwave for 20 min on high, stirring occasionally. I like to use a glass pyrex bowl that comes with a lid so I can pop the remainder right in the fridge.
