I have had fried apples on my mind ever since my Grandmother last visited a month or so ago. We were on our way to the apple orchard and discussing good ways to prepare apples. She reminisced about the absolute deliciousness of Fried Apples.
So, last night, I decided to get my fix, and serve fried apples with our turkey dinner. And I’m with Grandma- they really were yummy!
The apples were soft, the syrup was thick, sweet and buttery and the flavors spoke of fall with spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger coating the apples.
What a treat!
- 5-6 large apples
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp. cloves
- 1 tsp. sea salt
Peel the apples.
Cut off the core. Then slice and dice.
Transfer the cut apples into a large saute pan. Slice the butter into chunks add top the apples.
Sprinkle in the spices.
Cover the pan and turn the heat between medium and medium high.
Stir the apples occasionally. Allow to cook until the apples have softened and the syrup has thickened and is bubbling. This should take 20-30 minutes. Continue to stir occasionally.
For the last few minutes, you can remove the lid to allow the apples to cook down a bit more and the syrup to thicken more, too.
