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.
This is a great foundation recipe that you can use for many other things as well. Add it to a baked potato or top it with some barbecue sauce as well.

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon.
