Stewed Apple in Minutes
How to Stew Apples
Stewed apples are a great treat, especially for the fall months. If you want to make stewed apples, you just need to cut and core apples before heating them and flavoring them with tasty spices. You can store the apples in an airtight container when they're done or serve them right away. Stewed apples can make a perfect refreshment for an autumn party.
6 cups (1,440 mL) chopped and peeled apples
1/2 cup (120 mL) packed brown sugar
1/4 cup (60 mL) apple juice
1 teaspoon (5 mL) ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon (.625 mL) ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon (.625 mL) salt
Peeling and Coring Your Apples
Wash your apple.Run the apple under clean water, turning it as necessary to remove any dirt and debris.
Remove the skin with a pairing knife or vegetable peeler.Use either a knife or vegetable peeler to gently peel the skin off the apple. Try to remove only a thin layer of skin and keep most of the apple intact.
- It's easier to use a vegetable peeler, as you get more control and can trim less flesh off the apple.
- If you use a knife, point it away from your body as you peel the apple.
Place your apple on a cutting board.Get a clean cutting board and place it on a flat surface. Set the apple with the stem-side up on the board.
Cut the apple into four pieces.Make a series of vertical slices along the side of the apple, cutting just against the core. This will give you four pieces that should be about the same size.
Cut your apple into thin slices.Once you've cut the apple into four pieces, place each piece on the cutting board with the flat side down. Use a knife to cut across each apple, slicing the chunks into thin slices. Aim for two to three slices per chunk.
Mixing Your Ingredients
Place all your ingredients in a heavy sauce pan.Mix your apples, sugar, apple juice, and spices in a medium-sized saucepan. Cover the pan and place it on the stove over medium heat.
Boil the apple mixture for five minutes.Keep your apple, water, and sugar mixture covered over medium heat. Check it on occasion until it starts boiling. Leave it covered for an additional five minutes once it's boiling.
- Do not stir the mixture until it's boiled for five minutes.
Cook the mixture until the apples begin to dissolve.After the initial five minutes have passed, you can uncover the mixture and continue stirring it periodically. Cook the mixture for one to two more minutes. By this point, some of the apple slices should have dissolved slightly, while others will remain intact.
- Times vary, but it shouldn't take more than about five to ten minutes total for your apples to stew.
Completing the Process
Taste test the apples.Once the apples are dissolved, taste a small spoonful. If the apples aren't sweet enough for you, add a bit more sugar and stir it in. Keep adding sugar until the apples are as sweet as you want.
- You can check the new level of sweetness as soon as you stir in the added sugar.
- If you don't want to add too much sugar, try sweet spices like nutmeg or cinnamon instead.
Let the apples sit for five minutes before serving.Remove the apples from the heat. Let them cool for at least five minutes before serving.
Serve your apples.You can put your apples in a large casserole dish to serve at a party. Guests can serve themselves apples with a ladle or large spoon. If you want, you can garnish the apples with a little cinnamon or serve them with a side of vanilla ice cream.
Store leftover apples.Boiled apples should be refrigerated in an airtight container. They will last up to a week when stored in this fashion.
- Label the container with a date so you'll remember when you made them.
To make stewed apples, begin by rinsing, peeling, and coring your apples. Once that is done, thinly slice your apples and add them to a pot with some apple juice, brown sugar, and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Turn on the burner to medium heat, cover the pot, and let it boil for 5 minutes before you open the lid. After you open the lid, stir and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes and then let your apples cool for 5 minutes before serving.
