In a large skillet, warm the oil or butter over medium heat.
Add the apples, maple syrup, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon and salt. Stir to combine.
Cook for 10-15 minutes, until slight softened but not mushy. If you prefer the apples to have more of a soft texture you can cover them for about 5 minutes of the cooking process to soften them faster.
Serve immediately or allow to cool and store an airtight container for up to 1 week.
