Spray 9x13-inch baking dish with no stick cooking spray. In small saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine sugar, butter, syrup and ¼ teaspoon salt; stir until all butter is melted. Bring to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Pour and spread mixture on bottom of prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with pecans. In another small saucepan cook apples, apple juice, brown sugar, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg over medium heat, stirring often until apples just begin to soften (6-8 minutes). Stir in cornstarch and continue stirring until thickened (about 1 minute). Remove from heat.
