This is a recipe I found that is supposed to be close to the side from Famous Dave's BBQ -- I just ADORED these apples with ribs...and I know they work well with ham dishes for holidays!! *recipe untried by me yet, hope it is close to them!! Yield is a guess.
- 24 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into semicircles
- 3 -4 cups white sugar
- 4 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 cup rum
- Mix apples with sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- Mix in rum.
- Heat over medium heat until apple mixture is juicy and the juice boils.
- Boil for 20 minutes over medium heat.
- Enjoy! :).
Just an FYI: Famous Dave's also uses butter and orange juice in their recipe. Plus they use amaretto, not rum. These were good the recipe way and the og/butter/amaretto way :)
I really hate to rate this since I didn't follow the recipe very well. Here's what I did. I used about 6 apples off my tree into an oven save dish, added 1/3 cup sugar, 1 t. cinnamon and some ground nutmeg, then poured in rum, I think at least 1/4 cup. I mixed in 1/4 c water with 2 T cornstarch so it thickened, dotted with 4 T butter, loosely covered with foil and put it in the oven at 350 for about 50 min. I think this was pretty close to Famous Daves. It was a great base recipe.
Yumm! We modified this a bit, as we only had 3 apples (and it made the perfect amount for 2 of us). We used 3 apples, a little less than 1/2 C sugar, a little less than 1/2 T cinnamon, 1/8 t nutmeg, and 1/2 oz run. I ate mine plain, and DH said it was amazing over vanilla ice cream. We'll be making this often.
