I like to cut my apples up first- 5 or 6 Granny Smiths. Peeled and cut into slices or chunks...I prefer the chunks.
I then mix my spices in a bowl. It changes every time and I base it on smell and taste, but it is approximately 1/4 c sugar, 1-2 t cinnamon, 1/2 t each of nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, then 2 grinds of my pepper grinder.
Then I sprinkle my bowl of apples and set it aside to let the apples soak in the flavor!:)good cook diet scale (yes, just for this recipe). 150 sugar is about 2/3 cup.
