  • Peel the apples and cut into quarters. Remove the cores and cut quarters into 1/2" thick slices.
  • Place the slices in a bowl of cold lemon water to prevent browning. Soak for 5 or 10 minutes and then drain the apples and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  • In a large skillet, heat the butter until it is bubbling.
  • Add the apple slices to the skillet and continue to cook over medium high heat for approximately 5 minutes or until tender crisp and beginning to brown. Turn several times to brown evenly.
  • Add the brown sugar and continue to cook until sugar has melted and started to caramelize.
  • Apple slices should be tender. Serve as a side dish while still warm.

"Quick and very easy to prepare. The lemon water bath for apples really did keep them from browning (I used half a lemon in enough water to cover apples). Honeycrisp apples worked well. I added a little cinnamon to finish and served it over honey cake and ice cream."
