Author Notes: This is the first Christmas since my father died. I feel so sad. Yesterday my daughter and I started the croissants my mom used to make on Christmas. This morning I saw apples and decided to make my father's famous fried apples. No matter how many he made, it wasn't enough. luvcookbooks

Serves: 4
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 10 min

  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh young ginger, minced
  • 4 Apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Cinnamon stick or powdered cinnamon to taste
  • 1 Star anise(optional)
  • 1 Bay leaf(optional)
  • Nutmeg, whole
  • Dark brown sugar
  1. Melt butter and warm the ginger. Add apples, bay leaf, star anise and a bit of dark brown sugar. It should taste spicy and herby more than sweet. Sauté gently. My son likes crunchy and I like soft, so I make some thin chunks and some thick ones.
  2. When done to your liking, pile onto a platter and dust w freshly grated nutmeg. Enjoy!
