BROWN SUGAR Fried Apples
BROWN SUGAR Fried Apples made easy with crisp, fresh apples, butter, cinnamon & brown sugar! Favorite sweet southern fried apples served alongside dinner or with dessert. Perfect with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
- 5 large Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (about 6 cups)
- 1 TBSP lemon juice
- ½ cup salted butter
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch or all purpose flour
- dash nutmeg optional
Peel, core, and slice the apples. Place the sliced apples into a medium bowl. Drizzle the lemon juice over the apple slices and toss lightly to coat.
Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet or other large skillet over medium high heat.
When the butter is melted, add the apple slices to the pan. Saute until the apples begin to soften, about 5-8 minutes. You’ll notice a slight change in color from crisp white/green to a creamy white/yellow. If you're pressed for time, cover the skillet with a lid.
Stir the sugar and cinnamon into the apple mixture. Add a dash of nutmeg if desired. Continue cooking until the sugar dissolves into the butter and forms a sauce. Removing the lid from the skillet will help thicken the sauce. (if you've opted to cover the pan with a lid.)
Stir together the cornstarch with 3 TBSP cold water. Pour over the apples and stir to coat apples, cooking over low until the sauce thickens. If you would like more sauce, stir in ¼-½ cup of water and continue cooking to thicken the additional sauce.
