  • 30 g of cane or brown sugar
  • 20-30 g of butter
  • 2-3 tsp of cinnamon


Instructions fried apples with cinnamon

  • Clean, pat dry and peel your apples. Divide them in quarters and remove the core parts. Now divide into smaller pieces and then into cubes. Pour over a large spoonful of lemon juice and stir to keep them from turning dark.
  • In a non-stick pan place two types of sugar with the butter and cinnamon. The amount of cinnamon used is to your personal taste. If you want your apples to have only a delicate aftertaste add a teaspoon.
  • In case you use very sour apples, I recommend adding a tablespoon or more of sugar. If you use very sweet and ripe apples you can reduce the amount of sugar used.
  • Turn on the flame to low, melt the butter and stir. Now add the apple pieces and mix.
  • Cook over medium heat for 12 – 15 minutes, stirring often. Apples should become soft but not fall apart. The cooking time depend on the type of apple used and how large you have prepared your pieces of fruit.

Apples with cinnamon can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. If you would like to keep them longer you must proceed with the sterilization of the jars, which, once filled to the brim with the boiling jam, must be hermetically sealed and turned over for 10 minutes to create the vacuum effect. Alternatively once the jars are closed you can cook them in boiling water for 5 – 10 minutes.
