Sauteed Apples – ANYTIME Yummyness

I absolutely LOVE this dish.  I have served them for Holiday dinners and I have made them on Football Sunday!   These even make the best EVER applesauce!  YUMMY!  These are best when served warm.  INCREDIBLE over ice cream!  AWESOME over pancakes!

What You Need:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 large tart apples – peeled, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch…less if you want a little more syrup.  The photo is made with 2 teaspoons.
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

How To:

  1. Select you apple type.  I like Granny Smith or Fuji apples.  But you pick what you like!
  2. Core, peel, and slice the apples.  If you want a “softer” apple, slice thin.  If you want a firm but not hard apple, then slice thicker.
  3. Melt butter over medium heat in a large saucepan.
  4. Add the apples.
  5. Cook until the apples are just about tender which is 6 to 7 minutes.  Stir occasionally.
  6. Dissolve the cornstarch in water.
  7. Add the water and cornstarch to the apples.
  8.  Stir in the brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.             
  9. Boil for 2 minutes, or longer for more tender apples, stirring occasionally.
  10. They are done when you get the tenderness of the apples to your liking.
If you want applesauce, just mash away!  Keep all the juices!  The mashed apples will absorb all of it!  Lasts for days and days in fridge!
