Skillet Cooked Apples

This is a perfect way to use up apples, getting slightly ripe in my refrigerator. It's healthy (if you use margarine or oil) - but tastes decadent.

I like an old fashioned cast iron skillet, from time to time - but a non stick pan made the picture taking easier.

Ingredients
  • 1/4 C butter (margarine / cooking oil).
  • 6 - 8 ripe apples, cored and chopped.
  • 1 C ripe red grapes or 1/2 C raisins.
  • 1/4 C brown sugar.
  • 1/4 t cinnamon.
  • 1/8 t ginger.
  • 1/8 t nutmeg.

Preparation
  1. Core then chop the apples.
  2. Heat up a large skillet on high heat, add butter (margarine) to melt. Or use cooking oil for low cholesterol.
  3. Reduce heat to medium, and add apples and grapes or raisins.
  4. Stir fruit so each piece is lightly coated in melted butter (margarine).
  5. Sprinkle sugar, stir fruit to coat each piece.
  6. Sprinkle fruit with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, stir again.
  7. Saute fruit mixture, stirring frequently, until apple pieces are soft.
  8. Spoon cooked mixture into serving bowls, decorate lightly with ice cream - or Yogurt Sauce (opt).
