Stewed Cinnamon Apples straddle the line between side dish and dessert in the most delicious way! The apples are slow-cooked to a tender, jammy texture and coated in a smoky, sweet, spiced sauce infused with autumnal warmth. Stewed Cinnamon Apples taste amazing when served alongside fried chicken or seared steak, and it’s guaranteed to disappear before your eyes. Make sure you make enough because you will want seconds!
