  • 4 Fuji apples
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon thyme


  • Core and thinly slice the apples. Heat the butter in a pan over medium heat until it begins to darken and smell toasty. Toss in the apples and cook until they begin to soften. Sprinkle in a pinch of salt along with the cinnamon and lemon thyme and continue to cook, stirring seldomly to develop nice caramelization. You want the apples to be soft but not mushy, caramelized but not burned.
