Fried Apples

I saw these gorgeous apples in the grocery store and couldn't resist buying them.  They were crisp, sweet, and juicy!  After eating one I wondered what I would do with the rest of them, since I'm not a big apple-eater...FRIED APPLES!  These are great for breakfast or can be served alongside your favorite pork dish.  This dish comes together quickly and you probably already have most of the ingredients on hand!


  • 3 large Granny Smith apples
  • 1.5 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp honey

Melt the butter in a large heavy bottom skillet over medium-low heat.  Core and chop the apples into 1/2 inch slices.  Add the apples to the pan and stir with a wooden spoon, coating the apples in the melting butter.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.  Sprinkle the nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, and honey over the apples and stir to coat.

Add the water to the skillet and stir.  Cover the pan and cook 8-10 minutes, or until the apples are tender and most of the water has evaporated.  Remove from heat and serve.  A syrup will form and thicken as the apples sit.  


  1. So... I happen to be allergic to cinnamon and nutmeg. How can I make good fried apples without those two spices?

    1. You can cook these and omit the nutmeg and cinnamon. I would substitute an extra half tbsp of brown sugar and .5 tablespoon of honey.
