Fried Apples

Apple season is in full swing here in the Bluegrass!  Orchards like Reed Valley and Evan's have stands at the local farmer's market where you can try different types of apples and buy them for ridiculously low prices!

Take advantage by making this quick and easy recipe for one of my favorite apple dishes--fried apples!

Fried Apples

Makes 8 servings

8 apples (local), cored and sliced into 1/2 inch wedges
3 plus 1/2 cups cider (local)
4 tablespoons cornstarch
6 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  1. Place apples and 3 cups cider in a large pan on medium heat.
  2. Cook apples until fork-tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mix remaining 1/2 cup cider, cornstarch, and spices together.
  4. Once apples are done, remove them with a slotted spoon and turn the pan up to medium-high.
  5. Add spice cider mixture and heat until thickened.
  6. Add cooked apples back to spiced sauce and stir to coat the apples.
  7. Serve.
Use apples that you would eat plain; I personally don't like Granny Smith apples, so I used one of my favorites, Gala, along with a new favorite, Pixie Crisp.

You know that picture with the melting ice cream?  Yeah, it didn't last long!  The ice cream went with it perfectly!  My mom and I also bought almond croissants from Le Matin French Bakery and had fried apples with that too.  I'm pretty sure you can have fried apples with anything and for any meal.

I'm so happy to join the Dead Easy Desserts challenge this month hosted by franglais kitchen and maison cupcake
