These stewed apples go well with whole-grain waffles, pancakes, oatmeal or other hot breakfast cereals.
In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high. Add apples and pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are light gold, 4 to 5 minutes. Add apple juice, lemon juice, cinnamon, and pinch of nutmeg. Cook until liquid is reduced by half and apples are just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Off heat, stir in 1/2 tablespoon butter.
