Microwave Fried Apples


8–10 Mott’s® Fresh apples, medium, peeled (optional), cored and cut into sections or pieces
2 tablespoons margarine
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons lemon juice
powdered sugar (optional


Place prepared apples in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle lemon juice over apples and toss gently to coat.

Sprinkle soft or melted margarine over apples and add brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss thoroughly until brown sugar, lemon, margarine, and nutmeg coat the apples. Keep tossing (1–2 minutes) until apples begin to weep and a light glaze covers each apple.

Lightly butter glass or microwave safe baking dish and pour apple mixture evenly in pan or dish. Cover with plastic wrap and pierce for steam to escape.

Microwave for 8 to 10 minutes on high. Toss and stir and microwave 4 to 5 more minutes.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with your favorite cheese if desired.
