  • Measurements are broad. Adjust according to size of apples. I find it unnecessary to add water. May add cinnamon if you like.

Beyond tickled that someone submitted this recipe--I have been a fan of Laura Ingalls books since I first started to read. I made this last night for a quick dinner. I used Granny Smith apples for a hint of tartness, used a little more butter, brown sugar and cinnamon (my apples and onion were a bit on the larger side) and served this with a quality cooked kielbasa. NO leftovers. We ate every single bite.

So good ! I love how they paired apples and onions ! Who knew it would come out so good ? I actually added some turmeric, which kicked things up a notch !

Farmer Boy has always been my favorite of the Little House books. Years ago I made this for my kids--without a recipe to follow from the book, and because I always use apples in my Stuffing, I went with typical stuffing seasonings, Sage being a key player of flavor. It was pretty good eating! I tried this sweet and spicy version today and love it! We enjoy the health benefits of cinnamon, so I added 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, and cut the sugar down to 2 TBLS. I used Macintosh apples. And a dash of salt.
