Fried Apples

Quick and Easy


  • 6 to 8 medium apples - peeled and cut in wedges
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar - more if using tart apples.
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 or 3 Tbsp. water
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)


Add margarine to skillet over medium heat, then add apples. Saute over medium heat, for about 10 minutes. Apples should be fork tender. Don't overcook or you'll have apple sauce. Over medium-high heat, add brown sugar, plus a few tablespoonsful of water to caramelize apples. Toss gently just until all apples are coated. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and nutmeg (if using). Serve warm as a side dish in place of a vegetable, or over ice cream as a dessert.


Cooking time and the amount of brown sugar varies according to the variety of apple you are using. Use any variety, but fried apples are best when made with a firm apple like red or yellow delicious.
