Tart apples cooked with butter and sugar make a wonderful side dish or dessert.
5 tart cooking apples such as Granny Smith, MacIntosh, Golden
Delicious, or other
4 Tbsp. or more of butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
Wash, core and slice the apples into 12 - 16 narrow wedges, do not peel.
Melt the butter in a skillet or cast iron pan and add the apples. Cover the
skillet and cook the apples 5 minutes over medium low heat. Stirring
continuously, add the brown sugar and the nutmeg. Stir well. Continue cooking
the apples covered for 10-12 minutes or until the apples are tender, check every
few minutes while cooking. Add additional butter or water if needed to prevent
the apples from sticking.
