2 pounds apples (Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Rome Beauty) peeled, cored, cut into 1-inch chunks

1/4 cup dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)

Pinch of salt

1/2 gallon French vanilla ice cream, softened

  1. Combine the apples, brown sugar, orange liqueur, cinnamon stick, lemon juice, lemon zest and pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender, about 30 minutes.
