Sweet Baby Jesus! I had no idea what I had been missing! I had Cracker Barrel’s version of fried apples before & always thought it was good. Canned apples were like a vague reference to Cracker Snackers, but in a pinch OK.  Now I know what I’m doing, it will be home made always!

2077 went on a deer camp hunting trip and brought back a few basic recipes. Fried apples was the first one. They camp very primitive…pack it all in & such, so their cooking gear was small, lightweight, and portable and yields small portions.  2077 gave me to basic recipe then left me unsupervised! Which translates into I made A LOT of fried apples!

So here’s what I did:

3 lbs. of Gala apples, cored and cut (use whatever you want – this was cheapest at Walmart and a good apple.  I did leave the skins on)

2 sticks of butter

Sugar to taste

Cinnamon to taste

My skillet was slap full and it took me a while to cook it, mainly because I was cooking a whole chicken and didn’t want the apples to finish off early.  You need to cook the apples until they are soft.  I cut mine bigger, but if you want it to cook faster cut them smaller.  Simmer/reduce until the juice gets like syrup.

We ate this for a dessert and then the next morning put some in our oatmeal – out of this world!

Dig in & enjoy!
