"This is a good topping for ice cream, over fresh-baked biscuits, or over not-too-sweet cakes. Serve warm or Cold." Thank you Justin Wilson (Justin Wilson's Homegrown Louisiana Cookin'). Do not let the cooking time scare you off...this is pretty good stuff.
- 1⁄2 cup margarine or 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 4 cups sliced apples (I mix varieties, as long as they are cooking ones, for effect)
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup sugar or 1 cup Splenda granular
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- Over medium heat in a heavy saucepan, melt the margarine, then add the wine and stir in the apples.
- Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the mixture and stir.
- Continue cooking for about 10 minutes, then stir in the lemon juice and vanilla.
- Lower the heat to a simmer and cover; continue cooking for 2 hours, stirring occasionally until the apples break up.
Oh my gosh, these apples are so good! I did not use a expensive white wine, had granny smith apples on hand so used those, and also used butter and sugar. Only cooked the apples for about 1 1/2 hours and had a wonderful caramel colored sweet tasting chutney type spread. After refrigeration this did get very thick and gelled on the bottom. After microwaving I had a smooth mixture again. I think adding a bit of apple juice would work if the apples were still tlhick. Made and reviewed for the Celebrity Chef "Secret Ingredient" game.
