Autumn is here and both the apple and pear harvests are in full swing. While apple pies and crumbles grace many a table, we settle for an even simpler dish here: autumn fruit sautéed in butter and served with tangy kefir. This dessert lacks the cloying sweetness of most sweetened varieties as it’s made without sugar or other sweeteners; rather, the natural sugar of the fruit shines through.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 6 medium apples cored, peeled and sliced 1/2-inch thicl
- 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/4 cup apple cider
- Heat the butter in a pan until it’s foamy. Add the fruit to the pan and allow it to cook until just tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in the cinnamon, sea salt and apple cider and continue cooking until softened. Serve warm.
