Stewed Cinnamon Apples

This is the perfect fall recipe to put those extra apples from the orchard to use. Apples can add fiber to a diet without extra potassium – so this is the perfect dessert for those of who are on a strict low potassium diet. The apples are also delicious for breakfast served over oatmeal, pancakes, waffles or granola.
