I learned the hard way...Use a crockpot cooking bag when you make this and clean-up will be a cinch. I love the smell in the morning of apple snits (dried apples), raisin, and cinnamon coming from the crockpot. I do not use any nuts in mine. I add a little more sugar as I like mine sweet. If you do not use a liner in the crockpot, you will have a thick build-up on the edge which takes FOREVER to clean. This recipe is also good with diced dried apricots. We really enjoy it.
