Stewed Apples

V, GF

i went apple picking this past weekend, and got a multitude of varieties.  so i made a few things…apple crisp, apple pie, and stewed apples.  i’ve never made stewed apples before, but i’ve had them a billion times at cracker barrel…how hard could it be? i’m not sure how i came up with this recipe, i kind of just made it up as i went along.  hope you enjoy it as much as i did.

Stewed Apples
6 apples, different varieties, peeled, cored, and cut into slices
1/4 c sugar
2 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs cinnamon
1 tbs honey
1 tbs butter

add all of the ingredients except the butter to a pot and heat over medium high heat. cover and let the mixture come to a boil.  then uncovered, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until tender…15 minutes. turn off the heat and melt butter into the mixture.  serve hot, cold, or room temperature.

tips:

  • these stewed apples pair perfectly with pork.  the pork tenderloin i ate with them was marinated in lemon juice, oil, garlic, thyme, parsley, and dijon.
  • if you don’t have brown sugar just add more white sugar and add more honey (or if you have it: molasses).  brown sugar is just white sugar with molasses.
  • stewed apples taste just like apple pie filling.  so you could also serve them over ice cream, waffles, or in some oatmeal.
