Recipe type: Side Dish
- 6 large apples, Granny Smith or other good cooking apples
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 Cup cold water
- 6 Tablespoons brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- dash nutmeg
- Peel the apples; core and slice into thin slices. Toss with lemon juice as you add slices to a bowl to keep them from turning brown.
- In a large saucepan or skillet, melt the butter; add apple slices and sauté over medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 6 to 10 minutes or until tender and just beginning to change color.
- Combine cornstarch and water; stir into the apples. Gently stir in the brown sugar and spices. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat and simmer for about 3 to 5 minutes, stirring a few times.
- As a dessert, serve warm with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
- Serve plain as a side dish to accompany pork dishes.
Serve with fried chicken, pork dishes, or over ice cream, or with whipped cream as a dessert. It makes an outstanding choice as a flexible dish you can serve in a variety of ways. We like it over toasted pound cake, topped with whipped cream.
