You only need five ingredients for the perfect fall side dish: fried cinnamon apples! Serve alone, or over pork chops.
Last week, we had a cold-ish day. And last night, it got down to 50 and we were able to leave the windows open while we were sleeping.
You know what this means! Fall is coming! And I couldn’t be more excited. Summer is the one season of the year that I just can’t deal with. I don’t sweat, like AT ALL. No sweat. I just get beet red. Sometimes I get purple. My body’s inability to efficiently cool itself makes the hot days of summer pretty rough for me.
These early signs of fall have me a bit overexcited. And, have you noticed that apples are finally starting to get good again? Yes! I bought some awesome apples from the store this week. I’m pining for the season to change something fierce.
I took this all as a sign to whip out this family recipe.
My Mom made me these apples for many years, and I heavily associate them with fall. They are so very simple, with just five ingredients. The hardest part of this recipe is slicing the apples, which takes a few minutes. After that, throw the apples, water, butter, and cinnamon-sugar into a pot, cover, and let it rock and roll!
- Wash apples and slice.
- Add apples, water, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar to large skillet.
- Cover with lid and simmer for 30-45 minutes.
