"I've always liked them. I always thought applesauce was mushy." - Uncle Jonat
Fried apples are a common side dish in books by L. E. Modesitt, Jr., and a number of his protagonists insist on its superiority over puréed applesauce. This is the simplest recipe he mentions. According to Modesitt, these are commonly served with pork because they are "cinnamon-tart-tangy enough to offset the richness [of pork]".
For this dish, use cooking apples such as Granny Smith, Jonagold, or Braeburn. If you wish, you can also add nutmeg, replace maple syrup with raw sugar, and serve with drop biscuits, as in Ghosts of Columbia.
