How to Make Fried Apples


  1. Peel, core and slice apples
  2. In large frying pan add the butter and the apples, stir over medium heat until butter is melted.
  3. add the next 5 ingredients, cook over med heat stir occasionally until apples are soft and liquid has cooked down.
  4. stir in heavy cream, let cook an additional 5-10 minutes. stir frequently.
  5. ******* You can add just about any spice you want to, I often cook mine until they are just a slightly browned on the bottom, But they are just as good if you cook for only 5 minutes after adding the heavy cream. You can also increase or decrease the amount of spices listed. I have never had a real recipe for this, it is just something I have done for years to use up the few apples that weren't eaten between shopping days
