Fried Apple Ice Cream

Love the caramel at the bottom. This is served at the Dalles House, St Croix Falls, Wisconsin. Enough for 4 to share.

Fried Apples

2 medium apples
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon table salt

Peel and core the apples, slice them into 1/4-inch wedges.

Melt the butter in a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the butter and then layer the apple slices on top. Continuously stir the apples to coat them in the butter and brown sugar. When a syrup forms, sprinkle the cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt over the ingredients in the pan and stir together.

Reduce heat and continue to stir until the apples are tender and the syrup has reduced and thickened slightly. Remove the skillet from the heat and let the apples cool for several minutes. Serve alone, or as a topping for ice cream.
Makes 4-6 servings
