Easy fried apples are really easy. Within just about a half of an hour, you can have a delicious side dish or dessert.
I want to thank Rainier Fruits, Veggie Wash, and Rodelle Kitchen for providing me with the items I used to make this recipe.
Apples are in season now and you can find so many great varieties in the stores and the farmer’s market. Did you realize there are over 2500 varieties of apples?
We have all heard the saying, “An apple a day keeps the Doctor away.” Well, it is pretty true. There are so many great health benefits to eating apples. Take a moment to read this article, Health Benefits Of Eating Apples – you may be surprised at some of the things written there.
Trying new varieties of apples is fun to me. This recipe for easy fried apples would be great with any apple variety. I love using an apple that is sweet and tart.
Since there is some added sugar in this recipe, I made sure I chose an apple that is more tart than sweet.
Spending time with my family is the most important thing to me. So, I make sure that I am organized when I get ready to make a meal. One way I do it is by gathering all of the tools I need and putting them in one place.
I can remember a time when I didn’t practice this. Trust me, there were some dinners that had a few burnt spots!
Easy Fried Apples
Easy fried apples are sweetened with coconut sugar that gives them a bit of molasses flavor. Great for a side dish or dessert. Why not top your ice cream with them?
- 6 apples
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 1/8 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg (can use powdered)
- 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- pinch salt
Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add in chopped apples.
Squeeze the lemon juice over the apples, add the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Stir to coat the apples with sugar/butter mixture. Sauté over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes (until apples are fork tender).
