I grew up eating fried apples and then as an adult I discovered Cracker Barrel and their fried apples. This recipe is from another site and is as close as I have seen to Cracker Barrel. The recipe says you can freeze the cooked apples. I have never done this as there is never any left.
2 cups apple juice, plus
1/2 cup apple juice
4 large golden delicious apples, with peel, cut 1/2 inch wedges
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
4 tablespoons sugar
In a medium skillet, combine the 2 cups apple juice and sliced apples.
Simmer gently until apples are fork tender but not mushy, turning apples frequently.
Remove apples from juice using a slotted spoon and place in an oven-safe dish.
In a blender, combine the remaining 1/2 cup apple juice, cornstarch, apple pie spice and sugar.
Blend a few seconds until smooth.
Whisk mixture into hot apple juice in skillet and cook, stirring constantly on medium-high heat until it bubbles and becomes thickened and smooth.
Pour thickened mixture over apples and serve.
Please note the cooking time is approximate.
