Tart apples cooked with butter and sugar make a wonderful side dish or dessert.
5 tart cooking apples such as Granny Smith, MacIntosh, or Golden Delicious
4 Tbsp. or more butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Wash, core, and slice the apples into 12-16 narrow wedges. Do not peel. Melt the butter in a skillet or cast-iron pan and add the apples. Cover the skillet and cook the apples 5 minutes over medium-low heat. Stirring continuously, add the brown sugar and the nutmeg. Stir well. Continue cooking the apples, covered, for 10-12 minute or until the apples are tender, checking every few minutes. Add additional butter or water if needed to prevent the apples from sticking.
