- Nutmeg and/or Cinnamon
- 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.
- Slice the apples and place in a skillet.
- Add some water to prevent the apples from sticking. You will periodically need to add water as the apples cook.
- Allow the apples to sizzle.
- 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.
- Allow the apples to cook some more with the sugar and check to see if more water is needed.
- 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.
- If you wish, sprinkle the apples with cinnamon and/or nutmeg, or another spice to your liking.
- If you want to caramelize the apples you may do so, just be sure to continue adding water to prevent sticking.
