I love these apples as a side dish with pork, or over ice cream...delish!!

I always double the butter and brown sugar for extra sauce.. Enjoy!

How to Make Fried Apples


  • 1Peel the apples and cut into quarters. Remove the cores and cut quarters into 1/2 inch thick slices.

    Place the slices in a bowl of cold lemon water to prevent browning. Soak for 5 or 10 minutes and then drain the apples and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  • 2In a large skillet, heat the butter until it is bubbling.
  • 3dd the apple slices to the skillet and continue to cook over medium high heat for approximately 5 minutes or until tender crisp and beginning to brown. Turn several times to brown evenly.
  • 4Mix cinnamon with brown sugar.
  • 5Add the brown sugar and continue to cook until sugar has melted and started to caramelize.

    Apple slices should be tender. Serve as a side dish while still warm.

    We love these as a side dish, or over ice cream.
