Peel and core the Granny Smith apples. Slice them thinly.
Add the dried apple slices, apple juice concentrate, and spices.
Cook on low in a slow cooker until the apples are soft, stirring occasionally. This will take several hours in most slow cookers.
Puree in batches in a food mill, blender, or food processor. If desired, cook down to a thicker consistency.
If you use apples that are less tart than Granny Smiths, you may want to add lemon juice to taste after pureeing the mixture.
