Cinnamon Apples

I didn't realize that this delicious side dish was a specialty of the South until I couldn't find it on the menu of a local DC diner. Back home, these sweet, spicy apples may accompany any meal, and are particularly delicious for breakfast, served alongside toast.

I usually estimate one large apple per person, so multiply this recipe to feed your family and friends:

+ one large apple (Granny Smith, Golden Delicious and Pink Lady apples are the best for this)
+ butter, 2 tablespoons
+ brown sugar, 3 tablespoons
+ ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon (you can use up to 1 teaspoon, but remember: a little goes a long way!)
+ salt, 1 pinch


Peel and core the apple(s); slice into 1/4-inch segments. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; add apples, and saute just until softened. Add brown sugar and cinnamon, and continue to cook until the apples are fully coated in sugar. Enjoy!
