For Cracker Barrel restaurant lovers :-)
In a large skillet, melt bacon drippings. Pour apples evenly into the skillet. Sprinkle with lemon juice, brown sugar and salt.
Cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes, until apples are tender and juicy. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.

If you love Cracker Barrel's "Fried" Apples, like I do, here is a recipe I tweaked a bit and they came out great.
Combine 2 cups juice and apples in a skillet. Simmer gently turning apples carefully until tender, checking with a fork. Remove from apples from skillet and set aside. In a jar put 1/2 cup apple juice and cornstarch, cinnamon and sugar. Put the lid on and shake well (I do this over the sink). Stir into hot juices in skillet and cook on medium heat until bubbly and thickened.
These are a great side dish. Also good with vanilla ice cream, over oatmeal or pancakes, or waffles for breakfast.
