Prepare fresh pomegranate arils, if necessary.* Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large saucepan, combine 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in apples and lemon juice, tossing until apples are evenly coated. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken. Pour into a lightly greased 8 x 8-inch baking dish or pie tin. Sprinkle arils on top.
