This is a similar recipe to my Grandma's. They are not deep fried in oil but pan fried. She used Granny Smith if served as side dish for dinner and a sweeter apple (Golden Delicious) for breakfast.
8 medium Granny Smith apples, chopped
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Add apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sauté 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are tender. Serve as a side dish for pork or with breakfast. Serves 6.
