Deeply savory and a bit sweet, these apples are best served with roast chicken, pork chops or tenderloin, or on toast that you've slathered with either goat cheese or ricotta cheese.

For a sweeter take on this dish, see the variation, below.

 

4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter

1 pound apples, cored and cut into thin wedges

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon minced fresh sage

Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook further, for about 2 minutes, until it turns light brown.

Add the sliced apples, then scatter the salt and sage over them. Cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the butter is dark brown and the apples are softened, reducing the heat to medium, as needed, to keep the fruit from scorching.

Serve right away.

Variation: To make Sauteed Apples With Brown Butter, Ginger and Brown Sugar, swap out the sage for a tablespoon of minced fresh ginger root, and add 3 tablespoons light brown sugar and a shake of ground cinnamon. Serve warm, over vanilla ice cream or on top of oatmeal.
