I love this dish. My mother traditionally makes this as a part of a breakfast but I think it would be great for any meal. When I think of my childhood, often the fried apples came in the fall, but I love it all year round. Mom served it with fresh baked biscuits and butter. She also made eggs, bacon and so on, but often I’d just eat the apples and biscuits. I still make these often and they are a perfect meal.
4-6 apples, peeled and sliced (most people prefer slightly tart apples, I like the gala apples)
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2-3 Tablespoons margarine or butter
4 Tablespoons to 1/4 cup white sugar, depending on taste
1/8 to 1/4 cup water
After you peel and slice the apples, place them in a heated frying pan with the oil. Cover and heat over medium high heat til apples start to become translucent and soften (not too soft). Add sugar and water, cover and steam cook. When the apples are almost tender, add the margarine. If you prefer you can caramelize the sugar by uncovering the apples and reducing the liquid. Or you can slightly reduce the liquid and have a sugar syrup to serve with the apples. Serve hot with toast, biscuits. Serves 4-6 people.
