  1. DO YOU HAVE A RECIEPE FOR A CHESS PIE

    • Yes, look on the right hand side of any page on the website and click on the photo that says Cobblers and Pies. It is listed there.

  2. I have a freezer full of apples from our trees and we love them. I leave the peeling on and cook a large skittle full, stick of butter, white sugar and cinnamon. Yummy!!!!

  3. My mom used Jonathan apples, so I always have too. Jonathans are just usually more affordable…get them on sale in a 3 lb. bag. However, they do get more “mushy.” Still awesome, but I think I’m going to try Granny Smith b/c I think they will hold together better.

    I peel mine, fry in butter, and only add white sugar and cinnamon. They’re awesome!

  4. any type apples or granny ?

  5. This is one of my all time favorite southern dishes, I had fried apples all the time as a child in Virginia. As an Adult I love it most with Porkchops…(Instead of applesauce)

  6. I’m gonna try this for sure. My wife is the greatest cook. I know they’ll be grrreeeaaat!

  7. My mom and both grandmothers always made these. I have made fried apples as well & am surprised at the number of people who have never heard of this delicious way to serve and eat this fruit!

  8. I love fried apples! Every once in awhile I will season them with red hot candies. They turn them a beautiful red color that would make the apples perfect to serve for Valentine’s Day.

  9. What kind of apples would be best for this recipe? Any suggestions?

  10. I mix 1/2 the br.sugar and cinnamon and a pinch of salt with flour and dredge the apples in it before adding them to the grease.Great on pancakes or waffles.

  11. THANK YOU for this recipe!!! It seems to be just what my grandmother used to make…I was born in Virginia and moved to Michigan at age 3. My mother wasn’t all that fond of cooking, so she couldn’t tell me how to make these…also, she had alzheimers. I have searched for this recipe for a very long time! Will be making these very soon! BTW, love your site!

  12. Just retired and am so excited to try your great recipes. Can’t wait to try this apple one. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Used this recipe this morning – minus the bacon drippings- yummy! Thanks!

  14. I got a bowl full of apples on my kitchen table just waiting for this recipe!! can’t wait….lol

  15. I’ve never tried using bacon grease. Bet that will add even more flavor.

  16. WOW! Judy , those apples sound yummy! I LOOVE fried apples. Have to try this recipe!!

    BTW-Congrats for being on BLOGHER!!

    Love,
