Spiced Apples

These are great on their own or layered in a galette or as filling for an apple pie. They are a great candidate for canning as well. I make these in large batches for canning to have handy for throwing together cobblers, pies or just to dress up vanilla ice cream in a pinch.

The apples as a filling for a simple Apple Galette.

Spiced Apples


3-4 lbs apples, peeled and sliced (McIntosh, Granny Smith, or other pie type apple)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 Tbsp butter

Toss the apples with the lemon juice in a casserole dish
Mix in brown sugar and spices
Cut butter up into small pieces and dot around the top of the apples
Heat in the oven at 350 until apples are softened and spices and sugar are bubbling about 20 minutes
