Fried Apples

Not sure why we call them fried apples.  They’re not fried.  They’re sautéed in butter, actually.  Nevertheless, I stick with the catchy name.

I made these one crisp and beautiful fall morning for the ladies who were coming over to the barn for Bible study.  I was so surprised when half the group had never eaten apples this way.  Oh my goodness!  And of course, they loved them.

So!  If you’ve never done this, you simply must.  Anytime of the day, with any meal, especially grand with bacon and eggs, and absolutely perfect during the fall and winter… please have fried apples!

These were honey crisps.  I use any kind of apple I find. 

Peel them.

Cut them into bit sized pieces.

Put them in a skillet with a mighty hunk of butter.

A little salt.  Cinnamon and sugar to suit your fancy.  

Cook them on medium heat without a lid as much as you’d like.  Leave them a little crunchy, or keep cooking that fabulous apple juice syrup down.  You can’t go wrong.

Serve them piping hot and enjoy!

Post Script:  Last week I only had one apple, so I sliced up a sweet potato and ‘fried’ them together in butter and brown sugar.  Wonderful!  Just wonderful!  A new favorite.

    I make these for the Friday Market. I put them inside of flaky puff pastry and bake them until golden brown. People love them. So do I. I love to see the look on peoples faces when they bite into them. Makes me smile. They will be one of the regular things at the new bakery, “Rockin Rolls”
