Easy Fried Apples

Back in the vintage era people were enamored with apples.  It shows in all the vintage cookbooks I have since there are so many apple based recipes.  It makes sense however since no fruit stores better than an apple.  They get a bit sandy textured when they have been barreled which makes them unsuitable for eating out of hand, but they are still perfectly usable in recipes.  This was one I did with some BBQ pork chops awhile ago and is quite easy to prepare.

Fried Apples

Organic Granny Smith Apples, 1 per person
Lemon Juice
Brown Sugar
Unsalted Butter

Wash and core (and peel if desired) the apples.  Slice into slices 1/4" thick and sprinkle with lemon juice.  Dip each slice into brown sugar an place on a plate.  Heat frying pan on medium heat and add 1T butter.  When butter is hot place apple slices in pan and fry about 2-3 mins a side.  The sugar will come off and form a caramel sauce so don't let it burn, lowering heat as necessary.  When serving drizzle some sauce over the cooked apple slices.


  1. just found your blog on picketfences blogs. Love all that I see so far. My kind of blog!!! I'm all about vintage myself. :-) Are we sisters?

  2. Hello there and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, I'm surprised Picket Fence Blogs still has me around since I haven't been active with them in ages. I don't think we can be sisters since I happen to be a guy ;P
