Sauteed Apples with Thyme

Source: Everyday Food, October 2004


  • 3 McIntosh apples, or Golden Delicious apples (or a mix of both)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, leaves
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Core apples. Cut each apple into 8 wedges; halve wedges crosswise.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apples and 1 teaspoon each fresh thyme leaves and grated lemon zest; season with coarse salt and ground pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until apples are just tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 3 to 5 minutes.

    This is absolutely scrumptious! I have no idea how Martha (or her team!) come up with such recipes - I'm a novice cook :). Easy to make and even easier when you have an apple corer.

    I'm making this for Thanksgiving this year!
