Bourbon Fried Apples

Bourbon Fried Apples


"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."

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 ...

These were perfect even when I used Jameson Whiskey. Honeycrisp apples were the right call as well.

I used a mixture of golden delicious and gala apples. They were perfect.

This was delicious. I didn't have raisins, so I used craisins instead. I also used 2-3 tablespoons of the craisins because I figured it would add to the flavor, and it did! I didn't use the lemo...

Followed the recipe to the letter, and there are a few things I will change in the future to suit our personal taste preferences. The bourbon flavor was negligible, and there wasn’t much syrup ...
