Fried Apples My Way
I’ve always been crazy about apples ~ especially, baked apples, until I made fried apples; they’re even better! Fried apples are not quite apple pie but a close second. Perhaps, most folks think of fried apples as a dessert; but in my mind, it's a side dish. This is a simple, seasonal food that is packed with flavor.
Cook the apples just until they are fork tender. They can quickly surrender and turn to mush, so watch them closely. It’s as easy as apple pie!
4 apples: 2 Granny Smith and 2 Honeycrisp
½ teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar (I use Splenda)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Melt butter in skillet.
Drizzle lemon juice over apples.
Cover and cook about 15-20 minutes or until tender. (Watch closely; they can turn to mush quickly).
Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg, and toss.
Serve warm or room temperature, maybe with a dollop of whipped cream.
