Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 cups sliced Jonathan apples peeled
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon optional

Instructions

  • In a large heavy skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add all other ingredients and cook, uncovered, 8-10 minutes. Carefully turn the apples, with a spatula, every 2 minutes. The apples should be tender, but still have a slight bite and hold their shape.
