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.
Organic Granny Smith Apples, 1 per person
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.
