DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the apples to the pan and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.
  • Sauté the apples, stirring frequently, for 6-8 minutes, until they just start to turn tender.
  • Sprinkle the apples with the remaining sugar, cinnamon, and lemon zest.
  • Toss the mixture gently and cook over medium heat for an additional 2 minutes, until the sugar begins to caramelize and the apples are crisp-tender.
  • Transfer the apples from the skillet to a serving bowl with a slotted spoon.
  • Turn the heat to high and add the apple cider to the skillet, scraping up any browned bits.
  • Reduce the heat slightly and allow the cider and the pan juices to simmer for 1-3 minutes, until the sauce has reduced and thickened slightly.
  • If you desire a thicker sauce, dissolve the cornstarch in a teaspoon of water, stir it into the sauce, and allow it to thicken for a moment.
  • Pour the finished sauce over the warm apples and serve immediately.
