Fried apple recipes, in general, are only approximates because different apples have different cooking properties. So keep an eye on the apples while they cook, add more juice if necessary, and cook a few minutes shorter or longer according to how soft you like em’.
- 5 medium cooking Apples*

- 1/4 teaspoon Apple Pie Spice

- (optional) sprinkling of Fresh Nutmeg
- Peel, core, and slice apples.
- Add apples and juice to a pan over high heat and bring to a boil while covered.
- Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-high and simmer, with the lid half on, for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add the spices half way through cooking time.

- *There are many types of cooking apples that work well here. I like gala's, fujis, and jonagolds. My grandma exclusively uses Ida Reds for baking. Different apples will yield different textures when cooked.
- **Use 100% apple juice for this, the cocktail variety's have tons of added sugars and additives. You may need an additional 1/4 - 1/2 cup if the apples get dry during cooking.
