  • 2 Envy apples or Braeburn or Royal Gala if you can't find them
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

  • Peel, core, slice, and dice the apples. Toss them with lemon juice.
  • Melt the butter in a 2-quart nonstick pot over medium to medium-low heat. Add the apples, toss to coat evenly, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, sea salt, and Calvados, stir well, and simmer for an additional 10 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the liquid has reduced.
  • In a liquid measuring cup, whisk the water and cornstarch until smooth, then stir into the apple mixture.
  • Simmer for an additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently, then remove from heat.
  • Serve immediately.
