Quick & Easy Stewed Apples

4.5 / 5 (2 reviews) 5 Comments

Stewed apples have been a favorite of my entire family for years and this recipe is so easy and comes out absolutely perfect!  Plus, I would guess you probably have the majority of these ingredients already in your pantry.  I have used a variety of apples to make this and have yet to be disappointed.  My son prefers that I make this dish with Granny Smith’s and my daughters prefer Gala or Fuji apples.  The one thing that I make sure to always do is to slice the apples as thin as possible.  This helps keep them nice and tender.  When I make these for my family specifically I will go as far as to chop them up into smaller chunks so they are nice and tender for our littlest ones.  This is definitely one of my favorite go-to side items, but don’t be fooled.  You can also use these delicious stewed apples to top your vanilla ice ream which is absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  There is something extra special about the way the warm stewed apples start to melt down the ice cream.  One of my other favorite ways to enjoy these is with fresh whipped cream.  Remember you can always tweak your recipe to your liking as well.  Sometimes when the apples are a little more tart I will add just a small amount of sugar.  Other times if I want to kick the cinnamon up a little bit I will increase that measurement as well.  This is a great recipe to keep around for potlucks, family dinner night, or just because.  I will also mention that I often double this recipe so I can have plenty of left overs because these are even more wonderful when they’ve had a chance to sit and let the flavors meld together, plus they are super easy to reheat either in the microwave or on the stove.
