Thank you, Juicy Juice for sponsoring our fall into fall recipe of the day.
I’ve officially declared fall as my favorite season. Long a summer lover, I am so over the heat and humidity but what I love most about fall is all the fun recipes to warm you right up just as the temperatures cool down. My favorite ingredient to bring in fall is apples. Sure they’re available all year round but there is nothing like heading to the orchids in the fall to pick your own. We haven’t made it to the orchids for the season just yet but today I am sharing my favorite fall staple recipe: Sauteed Apples also known as fried apples.
Why are sauteed apples a fall staple? They are quick and easy to make, versatile for a variety of recipes and once you make this recipe, you will never make an apple pie with store bought apple pie filling again! Got 20 minutes? Yes, then make this recipe all season long.
Sauteed apples are perfect for apple pies (I’ll share what else I add to my apple pie filling soon), as a topping for pancakes, waffles or ice cream.
They are also delicious with pork chops and chicken any style. Seriously no matter how you prepare chops or chicken, a side of sauteed apples is always perfect.
- 3 Granny Smith apples
- 1/2 C Juicy Juice Apple Peach Juice
- 1/3 C raw sugar
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- Peel, core and slice apples in to medium slices
- Melt butter in wide pan over medium heat. Add sugar and stir rapidly until well combined then add juice and continue to stir.
- Add apples and cinnamon and stir to combine.
- Cook for 8 minutes until liquid reduces, starts to bubble and apples are soft.
- Serve hot.
For this recipe, I used Juicy Juice Peach Apple 100% Juice because I like how the peaches add a little something in flavor to the tart green apples. Give it a try or use the 100% apple juice from Juicy Juice. The addition of juice allows for less sugar and less butter in the recipe without sacrificing any of the taste. Store the sauteed apples in the fridge for up to 3 days. They are delicious served hot or cold but go with hot because yum!
We enjoyed our sauteed apples over ice cream for dessert today.
Stay tuned for a delicious pancake recipe that goes perfectly with this.
