After I posted the tomato gravy recipe I started thinking about other things my mamaw cooked up that I loved and fried apples was definitely next on the list. It couldn’t come at a better time since I’m knee deep in apples from our visit to the orchard.
I’m Bubba Gump-ing apples over here: apple butter, applesauce, dried apples, baked apples with oatmeal, cinnamon apples chips, apple and gouda salad…
Shall I continue?
No, you’re going to want to stop and check out this ridiculously simple recipe for fried apples. This is the South… of course we fry apples!
I call one apple a serving in this recipe. You can adjust the recipe amounts based on how many people you’re feeding.
- 1 apple; cored, quartered and sliced thin
- 1 teaspoon bacon grease OR 1 teaspoon melted butter
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- First we’ll core our apple and quarter it. Take each quarter and make long thin slices (Around 1/4 inch or so).
- Heat your bacon grease (or butter) in a pan over medium heat. Once grease is warm or butter is melted, add in apple slices.
- Cover the pan and let the apple slices cook for about 5 minutes.
- Remove the pan from heat and add in 1 teaspoon maple syrup and 1 teaspoon brown sugar. Stir well so all the slices are coated.
