Granny Smith Apples
I love Fall for many reasons and apples are right up there on top of the list. I particulary love Granny Smith Apples. I love their tartness, their flavor, and even their color. One way I love to use this apple is to make applesauce. My Grammy taught me how make it many years ago. I remember my son telling my Grammy that she should put a label on her applesauce and sell it at the grocery store because it was a lot better than store made:) LOL My absolute favorite way to use them are to make fried apples! I have eaten fried apples my whole life but I don't know if it is a Southern thing, a Virginia thing, a Universal thing or just a "Susan" thing!
All I do is take some butter and put it in the frying pan on med. heat. When butter is melted I add my apples slices and start stirring around so they will brown up a bit. After that I add a little water, sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nutmeg to taste. I let cook through and then serve them warm. You won't believe how perfectly yummy your house will smell. Okay, y'all help me out. Do any of you make these?? I was just curious. I think it is interesting the way the different parts of the country have their different ways of cooking along with their "specialty" dishes. If you haven't tried these I recommend them highly, you are in for a treat!
