Apple Spice Pulled Pork is tender pulled pork with spices and apple, cooked in your slow cooker.

This recipe is so simple to make, and the fact that it cooks in your slow cooker makes it all the better. You can start it in the morning and let it go all day and just shred it in time for supper.

I love the warm spices that go in this dish, cinnamon being the real hero of the recipe.

If you want to peel the apples, you can. I personally just leave it on the apples.

After the pork cooks, you simply transfer it to a pan.

Shred the pork with two forks.

Serve this Apple Spiced Pulled Pork with your favorite side dishes. I recommend some mashed sweet potatoes.
