2 fruit, 1 1/2 fat
1 tablespoon light or dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (freshly grated preferred)
1/3 cup 100% apple juice and 2/3 cup 100% apple juice, divided use
2 teaspoons canola or corn oil
2 medium Braeburn, Rome Beauty, or Golden Delicious apples, peeled if desired, thinly sliced, and patted dry

In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in 1/3 cup apple juice. Set aside.
