SOUTHERN SKILLET-FRIED APPLES
4 to 6 tart apples sliced into wedges
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup brown sugar (more if you like them sweeter)
Never miss a local story.
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
2 to 3 tablespoons water
Cut your apples up while you're melting the butter in a skillet (I use my cast iron) over medium heat.
You can peel the apples if you want, but it isn't necessary — I don't.
Toss the apples in the skillet, stir and let them cook until they are tender. You can check them by sticking them with a fork. Cooking takes about 10 minutes.
Turn the heat to medium high; add the brown sugar and water. Toss the apples gently until coated. Remove the skillet from the heat, then stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg.
Serve warm topped with ice cream.
