Are you making this? 
1 large Tart Apple; - Granny Smith or Gala
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice; -About 1/2 a small lemon
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Zest
1 teaspoon Cinnamon; - ground
2 tablespoons sugar free maple syrup

Original recipe makes 4



Core and thinly slice the apple (about 1/4 inch slices). Squeeze the lemon juice and peel off a small amount of rind. Carefully slice away the white pith leaving mainly the colored portion of the peel. Very finely dice this skin. Or use a zester to cut off fine strips of peel.

Place the EVOO in a warm pan then add the apples and saute them gently for a couple of minutes. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the apples then add the lemon zest. After another minute or so they should start to lightly brown. Add the lemon juice (this will stop the browning) and remove the pan from the heat. Add the maple syrup, mix and allow to cool slightly.

Spoon this over grilled or roasted pork. It's also good on chicken.

The sauce may be stored a few days in the refrigerator and warmed prior to serving.

The recipe doubles nicely if you need more.
