Ingredients
  • 1 2 lb. pork loin
  • 4 large or 6 small apples I like a combination of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar or can substitute with brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  1. Season pork with salt and pepper. Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place pork in bottom of slow cooker. Top with apples, sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Slice pork and serve with applesauce on top.
  2. FREEZER OPTION: Place sliced apples in a large zip-top bag. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger and toss to coat. Season pork with salt and pepper. Place pork in the bag on top of the apples. Squeeze all of the air out of the bag, seal, and place in the freezer. When ready to cook, thaw the bag in the refrigerator overnight. Spray a slow cooker with nonstick spray. Dump contents of the bag into the slow cooker (pork should be on the bottom with most of the apples on top). Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Slice pork and serve with applesauce on top.
