Fall in the Catskills & Fried Apples…

September & early October is a great time for apple-picking & there are many orchards in the Catskill Mts. & surrounding area. This time of year apples seem to be crispier & juicier. My favorite recipe is Fried Apples.

4-5 Gala or Fuji apples
Tablespoon of butter or margarine
Tablespoon of cinnamon sugar
3-4 glovers

Slice the apples & place them in a 10-inch fry pan with a ½ cup of water, a tablespoon of butter/margarine & 3-4 glovers. Over a medium flame stir occasionally until the apples are soft (but not too soft). Sprinkle a tablespoon of cinnamon sugar & stir.

For breakfast, serve hot with scramble eggs & maybe some type of sausage.

As a dessert, serve hot over vanilla ice cream.

Wright’s Apple Farm (699 Route 208, Gardiner, NY). They make it truly a family affair by inviting you to bring the whole family, including pooch, for a day of apple-picking & picnicking.
