Pan Fried Apples

October 15, 2009

We hope you all don’t mind, but we are scrapping the Simple Sustenance post for this week. We will bring it back next week for sure!

Now, on to the food!


Speaking of eating seasonally, tis apple season! Now is a great time to get apples for a good price at your local farmers market or grocery store. I love apple season and the way you can make so many different dishes using apples (apple pie, apple sauce, baked apples, etc). They can be eaten alone, or as a compliment to almost any dish.

Last weekend, while at my boyfriend’s family farm, we made up some pan fried apples. These were fresh and local and absolutely bursting with flavor. They were also a lot healthier than the gelatinous fried apples you get at southern restaurants like Cracker Barrel (though i do have a secret obsession with Cracker Barrel-don’t tell!). Best, of all, they are easy to make and are delicous for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Directions: Use as many apples as you want. Core and peel (peel is optional) each apple. Heat a few tabs of butter in a small fry pan on the stove-low heat. Add the apples and season with a little brown sugar and apple pie spice (or you could use cinnamon, ginger, or whatever else you like). Cook until apples are tender.

I love pan fried apples, especially on oatmeal or with vanilla icecream :) The last ones we made had maple syrup, orange zest and pecans. Yum!
