Caramelized Apples


(Adapted from Chris Scheur’s recipe on

Serves 4


3 large Granny Smith apples (about 1½ pounds), peeled and cut into ½-inch pieces

2 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons maple sugar (or dark brown sugar)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt


1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium low heat. (Chris recommends a nonstick skillet. My cast iron skillet worked fine.)

2. Stir in the maple sugar, cinnamon, and sea salt. Cook and stir until it is bubbly, about 2 or 3 minutes.

3. Stir in the apples. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 8 – 10 minutes. The apples will become tender and the sauce will become smoother.

4. Serve warm, or allow it to cool off and reheat it when you’re ready to use it.
