If you’ve never used allspice in your apple dishes, you are missing out! What allspice does is make the cinnamon *pop* in your recipes. It simply amplifies the cinnamon flavor. I like to add a pinch of it (a generous pinch) whenever cinnamon is called for in addition to the cinnamon.
Cut your apples in wedges but leave the skin on, it is wonderful in this recipe.
Don’t worry, it will be nice and tender when they are done!
Place apples in a single layer in a large skillet, pour apple juice over. Put this over medium heat. You want these to just simmer until the apples are fork tender. Keep an eye on these while you do the next steps. You’ll need to be nearby to turn them a few times in order to have them cook evenly.
Stir it up until you have this magnificent dish.
I know you want to wait until supper but really, shouldn’t you just have a little taste to make sure they’re good? Okay, maybe two or three tastes to be extra certain. 😉 Enjoy!
- 2 +1/2 cups apple juice
- 4 large golden delicious apples unpeeled and cut into wedges
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- In a large skillet, combine the apple juice and sliced apples. Heat on medium until apples are fork tender, turning often to enable even cooking. Be careful not to overcook apples. Remove apples from juice with slotted spoon and place in large bowl.
- In another bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir with wire whisk until well blended. Pour hot apple juice into dry mixture. Whisk vigorously until lumps are gone. Pour this mixture back into the skillet and heat on medium heat, whisking constantly, until bubbly and thick.
- Remove from heat and pour over apples in bowl. Stir until apples are evenly coated.
