While at Granny Apples we made granny's special fried apples. The recipe goes something like this. Slice several apples into thin pieces. You can also peel the apples if you prefer.
In a skillet melt butter about 3Tb then add the apples. Cook over medium low heat until apples are softened through about 30 minutes stirring often. Then add brown sugar 1/4 cup or to taste. Cook for a few more minutes being careful not to burn the sugar. Serve with your choice of sides such as bread, oatmeal, or pancakes. My favorite way to eat them is plain.
