Frequently Asked questions about sautéed apples and onions

How many apples to use per person?

The golden rule of thumb is one apple per person. If you know everyone will want a second serving you can add 1/2-1 extra apple per person.

What kind of apples to use for sautéing?

Most apples will work, but Granny Smith apples are some of the best.

How to get extra soft and mushy apples?

The trick to getting extra soft apples is all about the cooking. Just cover the pan with a lid while the apples cook to allow the steam to soften the apples. That’s it.

Should I peel the apples?

Only if you prefer your apples without the peel. You can make this recipe with or without the peel. Both ways work so it’s a matter of preference. I like to leave the peel on my apples because so many of the vitamins are found right next to the peel and they are removed when you peel the apples.
