  • 1 lemon (about 1/4 lb.)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds peeled, cored Golden Delicious apples
  • 2 tablespoons apricot-flavor brandy, brandy, or orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated or ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam


  1. 1. Rinse lemon, slice off and discard ends, then cut fruit crosswise into paper-thin slices, and discard seeds.
  2. 2. In a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over high heat, bring 1 cup water to a boil. Add lemon and cook for 1 minute. Drain. Repeat step.
  3. 3. In pan, combine lemon and 1/4 cup sugar. Stir often over medium-high heat until liquid evaporates, 4 to 5 minutes; take care not to scorch fruit.
  4. 4. Cut apples lengthwise into 3/4-inch slices. In a 10-inch-wide (about 8-cup) round quiche dish or shallow casserole, snugly arrange apples in a single layer. Tuck lemon pieces among apple slices. Spoon brandy over fruit. Mix remaining 2 tablespoons sugar with nutmeg, and sprinkle evenly over fruit.
  5. 5. Bake in a 450° oven until fruit edges are tinged with dark brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. 6. Stir apricot jam to soften; dot evenly over fruit.
  7. 7. Return dish to oven and bake until jam is bubbling, about 5 minutes. Spoon portions onto plates.
