How to make it

  • Wash the apples, do not peel.
  • Cut in 1/8 inch sections and remove the cores with a small melon baller.
  • Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat.
  • When the butter stops foaming, add the apple slices and saute gently until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Turn frequently but gently.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low.
  • Sprinkle the mace and sugar evenly over the apples.
  • Stir gently to mix.
  • Cover and cook until syrup carmelizes and the apples are glazed about another 10 minutes.
  • Good as a side dish at dinner with pork or ham, too.

    wow...this brought back some memories! As a little girl, it was such a treat to wake up on Saturday morning to the aroma of fresh fried apples & fresh biscuits. (I still don't quite know what to call it, but Mama Dorothy would mix up a batch of biscuit dough, shape it into a round mound, pat it down a little, and put it in a hot oven. When it was done, you could either break off a piece (okay, a CHUNK) or she'd cut it into wedges, almost like cornbread. Slather it in butter & homemade preserves (or honey) I!!

    Makes me want to experiment this weekend!!

    I love fried apples - but that will have to wait for our 2 apple trees to start producing a little on this year.

    My mother made fried apples when she was alive but I like the idea of the mace with the sugar.

    Thanks for the great recipe.
