This recipe from one of William's Sonoma cooking classes is very good- and makes an excellent side dish with your turkey or ham or even with your summer barbecue. The mixture of the apple, onion, cranberries and brown sugar all meld together to make a sweet -tasty side dish with my deep fried pork chops too.
This chilling time firms the flesh, making them hold up better in the skillet.
Peel and cut potatoes in bite size pieces. Set aside.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat; melt 3 Tablespoons of the butter and the brown sugar. Add the apple pieces and sauté, stirring occasionally, until apple begins to caramelize and brown around the edges, takes about 5 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer to serving dish and serve hot, warm or at room temperature. This is an awesome side dish!!
These are great served with Marshmallow Sauce:
1 jar marshmallow creme
1/2 c. heavy cream
Place in blender and whip up until well blended. Serve over potatoes.
