If you are a fan of the
restaurant Cracker Barrel, you are
going to love this recipe!
The simplicity of this recipe
will have you making it often.
Lark's Fried Apples
4 TBSP. Bacon Grease
1/2 C. Brown Sugar~ packed
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
2 TBSP Cornstarch
1 C. Water
4 Lg. Granny Smith Apples
In a large cast iron skillet heat
the bacon grease. (I don't keep bacon
grease on hand, so this gave me the excuse
to fry up a pound!)
This picture looks like there is a ton
of bacon grease in it, however
there is only the 4 TBSP.
In a small bowl whisk together
the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg
and cornstarch. Peel and slice the
apples. I like the apples on the
"thin" side, however you can slice
then as thick as you would like.
Add the sugar mixture to the heated
bacon grease, whisk to blend.
Slowly pour in the water while
whisking. Continue to whisk until
it begins to thicken and boil.
Let it boil for 3 minutes.
Now add in your apple slices.
Turn down your heat, stir until
the apples become fork tender.
Now they are ready to serve up.
You can eat these warm or chilled
which ever way you desire.
These will last for up to 3 weeks
in the fridge. I kept a jar of
these fried apples to make a
"Fried Apple Crisp" for dessert
later on in the week.
