Talking about heavenly, wait till the ground cinnamon hits the warm apples. OMG...nothing smells better than that.
In fact, if you go to any restaurant serving ribs, you will find a side dish called by about the same name. So, this is another restaurant remakes recipe for you.
The difference is that you can have a bigger or smaller serving per your preference. You can also control the crisp tenderness.
The inspiration of this side dish recipe was our annual apple picking trip. In upstate New York, there are many apple orchards. Throughout all the years, we developed this family tradition of visiting that same orchard every year.
Of course, we have the apple cider donuts and apple cider during our visit. Last but not least, we pick our apples. While we are there, how can you resist of not getting tons of freshly picked apples? At the end of each trip, we get at least 50+ apples home.
Even though the old saying says, "an apple a day, keeps the doctor away." You will get tired of the same thing over and over every day. That was how I came up the idea of this recipe.
My family and I love crispy apples. Even though we cook them, we like the crisp tender texture. Honey crisp, Cortland and Pink Lady are our favorites . Please feel free to choose your favorite kind of apple for this warm cinnamon apples side dish.
Once you try it, I am sure that you want to double, triple or quadruple this warm cinnamon apples recipe. So, what should you do?
The ratio is for every 2 apples, add 1 tablespoons fat (i.e. butter or the combination of butter and canola oil) and 1 heaping tablespoon of brown sugar. Dark brown sugar does give a nice color. But light or dark brown sugar is fine.
Now you know all the basics. I hope you are excited to try out this recipe.
