Bourbon Fried Apples

4.8

These bourbon apples are a slightly healthier spin on traditional fried apples. The skin is left on, and the reduced butter and sugar are offset with flavor-boosting bourbon, raisins, cinnamon, and lemon juice. I use Cameo apples for this recipe, as they are naturally sweet and hold their shape well, but if you're using a tarter variety, you may wish to increase the brown sugar and omit the lemon juice. Golden rum can substitute for bourbon.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon Bourbon whiskey

  • 2 large apples, cored and chopped

  • 1 tablespoon raisins

  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

  1. Combine water, butter, and bourbon in a large skillet over medium heat; stir until butter melts. Add apples, raisins, brown sugar, and cinnamon; stir to coat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring frequently, until apples have softened and liquid has reduced to a syrup, about 10 minutes. Stir lemon juice into apples and serve warm.
