Country Fried Cinnamon Apples

This is a great recipe my family has been using for at least 50 years. It is very easy and goes great with pork chops. I usually use 1 apple for each person that I am serving. I like to use Fuji apples, but any variety of red apple will do. You can also cook these up ahead of time and cover them while you are preparing other food. I make the apples, cover them, then move on to grill up pork chops.

1 apple for each person being served
1/2 cup of sugar per apple
1 teaspoon of cinnamon per apple
1/4 stick of real butter

Slice the apples into small quarter size pieces. I core the apples then cut up the slices. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Place the apples into the skillet and mix in the sugar and cinnamon. Cook the apples over medium heat, mixing frequently. As you continue to cook, the liquid in the apples will be released into the pan and caramelize with the sugar and cinnamon. Continue to cook until the liquid has thickened and the apples are nice and soft. You can serve immediately, or cover and let to thicken.

Serve the apples hot over vanilla ice cream as a dessert.
