This picture doesn't do justice to the the actual taste of this red/orange sauce, which tends to grow on you.
I peeled, cored, cut out the bruises, and worm holes, cut them into chunks and into the crock pot they went along with the crab apples and the peaches. I set the crock on low and left them to cook overnight. There is no added sugar or liquid, yet it is very sweet. After the first couple of tastes, it grows on you...it will be better without added fruit1
