How to fry apples
Fried apples are a southern classic. Pair them with biscuits for breakfast or with dinner.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon canola or another unflavored oil
- 3 cups peeled and cored Macintosh or Granny Smith apples cut into 1/2 inch wedges
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar you may need a bit more if your apples are very sour
Heat the oil and butter in a medium skillet until the butter starts to melt and bubble.
Add the apples and toss them gently to coat. Cook on medium-high about 5 minutes.
Add the water and stir. Cook the apples 5 minutes more, stirring once.
Add the sugar and stir gently. Reduce heat to low.
Simmer the apples gently until they are soft. This may take 15 minutes or so stirring gently every 5 minutes. If they look like they are drying out in the bottom, add another tablespoon or two of water.
Serve warm with biscuits for breakfast, or with dinner. They're also good cold.
