"My husband loves fried apples and when he tasted this, he said WOW....this is a "Keeper". They had only cooked for about 10 minutes and the spices had just been added right before he sampled them.....he liked the firmness at that length of cooking time So glad I've finally found one he enjoys. "

Preparation

This originally came from Wendy Lockman, who said the originator was Grandpa Jones, the entertainer. Anyway, I tried it for the first time last spring, and I now make it almost weekly. Leftovers reheat well, too! Peel and core apples. Slice them into eighths. In a large skillet, melt bacon drippings. Place apples evenly over skillet bottom. Sprinkle lemon juice over them, then brown sugar, then salt. Cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes, or until apples are tender and juicy. Uncover, and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir well. Simmer for a few minutes longer until the pan juices begin to thicken. Serve hot as a side dish. This is especially good with ham, pork, or fish. Posted to EAT-L Digest by "Sharon H.

I used one stick of butter since I had no bacon drippings...hubby loved them! Said to add to his favorites...served with polish sausage/sauerkraut and German Fried Potatoes ! Definite big hit!

This is so good. Tastes like apple pie. I served it warm over vanilla frozen yogurt. I definitely recommend and will make again. Also only cooked for 10 minutes and the apples were just the right amount of mushy and firm.

I also preferred cooking the apples for 10 minutes. And instead of using the bacon drippings (I don't eat red meat), I substituted it with margarine and it turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious! I also prefer a shorter cooking time for firmer apples. 10 minutes was about right for me.

I tried this with and without bacon drippings. Bacon drippings is the difference maker. I baked the bacon for 2 hours at 200 degrees on wire rack and the drippings were clean and made a huge difference.
