It's Beginning to Smell like Christmas

After finding a rather sad looking apple in my bunch last weekend my mom suggested a lovely way to use it. 

Select any apple that is overripe or just seen a better day and cut it into slices. Add water to cover the slices, add a little ground nutmeg, a cinnamon stick and a few cloves. Then just put it on low on your stovetop and savor the delicious "warm-apple pie" scent throughout your kitchen. So comforting and cozy. This batch should last you about a week, being sure to add water when necessary.

(Sorry, for the less than desirable phone photos. Does anyone else dread the lack of light this time of year?)
