Honey Fried Apples

For years, I visited Jackson’s Orchard in Bowling Green, KY every fall.  As I have mentioned before, I have NO sense when it comes to how much to buy when I’m getting an incredible deal.  I would always check out the back room of “seconds” on apples and would come home with a couple of bushels.  Then I’d be spending a lot of the next few days peeling, chopping, and preparing the apples in a variety of ways.  There was the crockpot apple butter, apple crisp, and sliced apples to put in the freezer.  WIth those sliced apples, I could make all kinds of yummy apple desserts or a delicious side dish like these fried apples!

Fried apples are the perfect side to serve with so many main dishes.  The sweetness combined with a savory pork, chicken,  or turkey are especially good.  I recently mentioned my love of combining them with a spicy sausage & cabbage bake.  Yes, they are pretty sweet.  You can do any kind of “sweet” combination you like.  I have used white sugar as well as the brown sugar and honey.  I happen to have some amazing tasting home grown honey courtesy of my brother-in-law.  The amount of cinnamon is totally up to your taste.  I like a good sprinkle, but not overpowering.
