    Combine apple cider, lemon zest and lemon juice and pour around apples in cooker. Add stick cinnamon to liquid. Top each apple with a piece of butter.

    Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 hours.

    Sauce Directions:
    In a heavy small saucepan, bring the ⅓ cup brown sugar, whipping cream, butter and corn syrup to a light boil over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally; reduce heat to medium.

    Boil gently, uncovered, for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.

    Stir in vanilla and sea salt. Cool to room temperature before serving.

    Transfer warm apples to dessert dishes.

    Top each apple with a bit of the cooking liquid.
