Fried Apples

Feel free to substitute any fresh herbs you may have on hand: English thyme, basil, rosemary, or sage are all great options.

Keyword: apples, fruit, side dish, topping
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Kala Riddle

Ingredients

  • 4 Fuji apples
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon thyme

Instructions

  • Core and thinly slice the apples. Heat the butter in a pan over medium heat until it begins to darken and smell toasty. Toss in the apples and cook until they begin to soften. Sprinkle in a pinch of salt along with the cinnamon and lemon thyme and continue to cook, stirring seldomly to develop nice caramelization. You want the apples to be soft but not mushy, caramelized but not burned.

Suggested Pairings

Whole Grain Buttermilk Biscuits 
There is a wonderful source of whole grains in Chico at Rancho Llano Seco. They sell bags of whole Spelt and Emmer flour at the Saturday Farmers’ Market, flours that make for a flaky and tender, wholesome and nutritious batch of biscuits. If you prefer a more familiar light and fluffy variety of biscuit, feel free to substitute the Spelt flour for unbleached white flour.

Sausage Gravy
This is a no-recipe recipe, which came to me from my Arkansas-born Gram. I did my best to make the recipe with careful attention to the amounts used. This recipe is a loose adaptation of the one she showed me to make years ago—with tweaks, of course.
