“When fall rolls around, I find I have a craving for my mom's stewed apples. She never followed a recipe, but would somehow always manage to whip up the most flavorful apples you ever tasted! In an effort to recreate my mom's stewed apples, I came up with this recipe. We would usually have this as a side dish with supper, replacing applesauce. However, it would also be delicious served as a dessert with vanilla ice cream or over gingerbread or pound cake with a little whipped cream. I hope you will enjoy it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 10" skillet (w/lid) melt butter over medium heat; turn off heat.
  2. Mix in sugar and brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and add 1/2 cup water, stirring to combine.
  3. Bring mixture to a boil and allow to boil until beginning to thicken.
  4. Reduce heat to medium; stir in apple slices, turning to coat.
  5. Cook over medium to medium high heat 4-5 minutes, stirring, allowing sauce to continue to thicken.
  6. Reduce heat to low, cover apples and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, another 5-10 minutes, adding more water if necessary, until apples are tender (cooking time will depend on the thickness of your apple slices).
