Sauteed Apples with Star Anise and Cinnamon

My second recipe for the market talk this Saturday is a variation of my previous recipe for Amaretto Apples. Instead of using amaretto, this recipe calls for star anise and cinnamon sticks.

Sauteed Apples with Star Anise and Cinnamon
Serves 4

4 -5 apples
3 tbsp butter
2 cinnamon sticks
4 star anise
1/4 cup sugar

1. Prepare the apples: Wash and thoroughly dry the apples, then core and slice them. Set aside.
2. Set a skillet over medium heat and melt the butter. Add the cinnamon sticks and whole star anise and cook for a further two minutes. Add the apples and cook until fork tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the sugar and cook until a thin sauce forms.
3. Serve over low fat ice cream or angel food cake.
