Fried Onions and Apples Recipe

Publisher Photo
Since a lot of delicious onions are grown in our state, they are always part of my menu. This tangy side dish is good with pork and beef. The inspiration for this unusual combination was a prolific apple tree!—Janice Mitchell, Aurora, Colorado

"Excellent and easy! Had them with Country Style Ribs and Creamy Ranch Mac n Cheese. The flavors really enhanced each other. Love TOH!"

MY REVIEW

"I tried this recipe for the first time! I did make some adjustments to this recipe and instead of butter, I used 2 Tbsp. canola oil with the sliced yellow onions. Instead of brown sugar, i used 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar with 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon. I also used 2 Tbsp. apple cider for this dish and cut the apples into smaller pieces, rather than wedges! I admit that I covered the pan later into the cooking time and I'd stirred the mixture from time to time! This certainly is an unusual dish and was Almanzo Wilder's FAVORITE dish! I ate the whole pan! It's likely that I'll prepare this dish again! I had the time on my hands as I'm alone tonite and just felt like making this dish! Thank you, Sue Davis, for this theme menu and recipes from the Laura Ingalls Wilder series! I have the whole series and it has been fun to read about how both Ma Ingalls and Mother Wilder could be such EXCELLENT cooks/bakers for their families! delowenstein"

"We've been making this side dish for over 10 years now. It's always a favorite, especially with pork chops. Every fall when the apples are in season, we make it several times. I halve the recipe for my smaller family. Yum!"
