Fried Apple slices,  Fried Cinnamon Apples
My hubby has always talked about his Mom’s fried apple slices that she served over pancakes or waffles in the morning.  And I always thought they were stewed apples with a thick syrupy glaze.   But I should have known my hubby better.  They are apples cooked in a cast iron skillet with the flavor of cinnamon, not too sweet and not overcooked, but left with a bit of crunch in the center.

I make something similar but am glad to hear that a cast iron skillet is better - will try that next time with your recipe !
