Easy!! Goes well as a side dish. Try using splenda in place of the sugar! Found this in a school cookbook while in Nurenburg, Germany.


  1. Wash and core apples.
  2. Cut apples in quarters and slice each quarter into 3 of 4 sections.
  3. Put in heavy skillet, sprinkle with sugar, and add margarine.
  4. Cover and cook on medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Uncover and cook 10 to 15 minutes until apples are tender and transparent.

This is the way my Nana always made fried apples and its the way I make them now except I do add a dash of cinnamon and neither of us ever used a lid. These are so easy and so delicious. The way i'll always make fried apples. Thanks for posting!

Delicious!! I added a dash of salt and some cinnamon. Other than that it's just like my mom always makes...YUM!! I love eating them with pork chops. Now that's comfort food! Thanks for sharing!!

I've been enjoying this since childhood. It's so simple and sooo good. I don't often use a lid on the skillet but otherwise it's the same delicious treat I make.
