It's apple season so for this posting of "What's Mom Cooking?" I'm sharing my fried apple recipe with you. If you have ever been to a Cracker Barrel Restaurant then chances are you might have tried their delicious fried apples. If so you might think this recipe tastes just like theirs.....or pretty close to it! I grew up with fried apples being served as a side dish and still enjoy them today as much as I did as a kid. However they are just as good for desert with a scoop of ice cream or for breakfast over pancakes or waffles.
Here is the recipe for easier copying and printing:
2 cups apple cider
4 large Golden Delicious apples peeled, 1/2" wedges
1/2 cup apple cider
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons sugar
Combine first measure of apple cider and apples in a medium skillet. Simmer gently and turn apples often with spatula until fork tender but not mushy. Remove with a slotted spoon to oven dish. In blender puree 1/2 c apple cider, cornstarch, cinnamon and sugar. Blend a few seconds until smooth. Stir into hot juice in skillet and cook, stirring constantly on med-high until it bubbles and becomes thickened and smooth. Turn heat off. Pour over apples.
Serve warm as side dish or dessert. Refrigerate to use in a few days or freeze.
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
