If you are a Southern girl, then I am sure you have had these delicious fried apples at one point or another. As a little girl, I remember my momma always fixing these apples to go with our meal. Whether we were having fried chicken, porkchops, steak, or whatever kind of meat, fried apples usually was a side dish.

There is just something about recreating a recipe you grew up on. It’s like going back to your roots and rediscovering childhood. When I think about fried apples, I think of all the times we sat together at the dinner table talking (or in my dad’s case watching the news), and laughing together.
These fried apples remind me of the happy times in my family. I guess that is why I love them so, plus they taste really good 🙂
Recipes are meant to be like that — passed down from generation to generation and enjoyed for years to come.
