Fried Apples

Fried Apples
  • Apples
  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Butter
  • Nutmeg and/or Cinnamon
  1. If you are using a thin skinned apple, like Shizuka, there is no need to peel the apples. If you are using a thicker skinned apple like Crimson Crisp, then you may want to peel them. There is no right or wrong decision.
  2. Slice the apples and place in a skillet.
  3. Add some water to prevent the apples from sticking. You will periodically need to add water as the apples cook.
  4. Allow the apples to sizzle.
  5. After the apples have begun to soften, add sugar to your liking. You may use white sugar, brown sugar or raw sugar. Brown sugar will result in a more molasses-y fried apple.
  6. Allow the apples to cook some more with the sugar and check to see if more water is needed.
  7. Add about 1 Tablespoon of butter to the skillet. You may use salted or unsalted butter. If you choose to use unsalted butter, you may find that adding ⅛ teaspoon of salt will enhance the flavor of the apples.
  8. If you wish, sprinkle the apples with cinnamon and/or nutmeg, or another spice to your liking.
  9. If you want to caramelize the apples you may do so, just be sure to continue adding water to prevent sticking.
