Southern Skillet Fried Apples - A southern classic side, made of slices of apples that are fried in a brown sugar butter and then tossed in a dusting of traditional apple pie spices; simply mouthwatering!
Now don’t get this wrong…fried apples do not mean deep fried; simply put, you are pan frying them in butter, sautéing them if you will. Southerners use ‘fried’ to cook anything and everything and let me tell y’all, I love it!
- ¼ cup unsalted butter
- ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp Apple pie seasoning, heaping
- 5 to 6 cooking apples, cored and sliced in eights
- Add butter, brown sugar and apple pie seasoning to a large cast iron skillet on medium heat.
- Cook, stirring occasionally, until butter and sugar have melted.
- Add apple cider vinegar and stir.
- Add apples to skillet and gently fold to coat with sugar mixture; cook, using a gentle folding method stir occasionally, until apples are tender.
- Southerners traditionally leave the apples unpeeled but if you prefer them peeled everything will still turn out ok!
