Happy spicy apples with spices


3 large tart apples, such as Granny Smith

3 large sweet (firm) apples, such as Braeburn

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon ghee

½ tsp cinnamon

several cloves


Peel, core and evenly slice apples about 1/8-inch thick, putting the slices directly into a 4 1/2-quart Dutch oven or other large, heavy pot with a lid. Toss apple slices with lemon juice. Add ghee and place over medium heat.

Add spices. Stir and cook until apples begin to release moisture, about 2 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender but not mushy, about 8 to 10 minutes.
