Fried Apples Recipe
This fried apples recipe is wonderful served over hot out of the oven biscuits or, for a delicious dessert, you can pour the warm fried apples over ice cream and top with caramel sauce. They also just make a wonderful side dish served with breakfast or with almost any pork dish.
Here's what you are going to need:
3 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced thick
1/2 (1 stick) cup of butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 to 1/2 cup of hot water
Here's what you need to do:
Melt the butter in a large heavy bottom skillet.
Stir in the salt and brown sugar. Cook while continuing to stir for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the apples. You can use pretty much any kind of apple you want except maybe a soft apple like a MacIntosh. MacIntosh would probably become mushy. My personal favorites for this recipe are honeycrisp, gala and golden or red delicious.
Continue cooking over medium heat until the apples give up their juice and then the juice thickens and the apples become tender. Depending upon the type of apple you use, this could take a little while.
Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and enough water to make it the desired consistency. I like mine the consistency of pure maple syrup. Not too thick and not too thin. Stir and continue cooking another 3 to 4 minutes. If for some reason you get it too thin, you can always make a little slurry of 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with 1 Tablespoon of cold water and add it to your apples to thicken it back up a little.
I think you're gonna love this fried apples recipe!
