Bourbon Fried Apples

Bourbon Fried Apples

AlmaFeliz 0

"This is a slightly healthier spin on traditional fried apples. The skin is left on, and the reduced butter and sugar are offset with flavor-boosting bourbon, raisins, cinnamon, and lemon juice. I use Cameos for this recipe, as they are naturally sweet and hold their shape well, but if you're using a tarter variety, you may wish to increase the brown sugar and omit the lemon juice. Golden rum can substitute for the bourbon."

Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring frequently, until apples have softened and liquid has reduced to a syrup, about 10 minutes. Stir lemon juice into apples and serve warm.



I made the recipe as written except that I peeled the apples. I liked having very little sugar as I am trying to break my sugar habit. Next time I might add some chopped pecans. The apples were ...
