MELBA'S SWAP SHOP

DADS ARE GOOD COOKS, TOO

DEAR MELBA: Father's Day brings memories of my deceased dad, John Abrams. He used to make the best Fried Apples when we were children. I think the recipe was from his childhood, growing up in Henryetta. These Fried Apples were so good, and he served them with bacon and biscuits. After frying the bacon, he used the drippings to cook the apples.

I also remember he was adamant about only using Jonathan apples.

I was hoping you could come up with this recipe, since you had an inside track with him.

I did have an “inside track” with him. We were married for many years.

FRIED APPLES

4 apples, Jonathans or Winesaps

2 tablespoons bacon drippings

Remove the cores from the apples. Do not peal. Cut crosswise in thin slices.

Melt bacon drippings in large skillet and add apples. Cover and cook over medium heat 5 minutes.

Remove cover and cook 5 more minutes. With large spatula, carefully turn apples and cook 5 more minutes or until golden brown on both sides. The apples will be tender but not mushy. Serves 2.
