  • 1 (6-ounce) package dried apricots, chopped

  • 1 tsp. grated lemon zest (grated lemon peel)

  • 2 tbs. fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • Crunchy Topping

  • Ice cream, whipped cream, or Cheddar cheese slices

In your crockpot, combine the apples, dried fruits, lemon zest, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, flour, salt, and butter. Toss until well mixed.

Cover and cook on the low heat setting about 6 hours or until the apples are soft but still hold their shape.

Meanwhile, make the Crunchy Topping (see below) and set aside to cool.

Sprinkle half of the Crunchy Topping over the fruit and cook, covered, on low 30 minutes longer. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, or cheese. Pass the remaining Crunchy Topping separately.

Crunchy Topping: In a medium saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons butter. Add 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats and 1 cup chopped pecans. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander. Cook 5 minutes longer.
