My Husband Gets Stewed -- Apples, That Is!

Charlie loves stewed apples. Whenever he goes to a restaurant, if stewed apples are on offer, he orders them. I can take them or leave them.

At home, he used to make "fried apps," which was apples, peeled, cored, and sliced, cooked in a skillet with butter, sugar, and cinnamon until most of the liquid is gone. I adore fried apps!

Alas for me -- he's switched to making stewed apples. Truth to tell, I beginning to get used to them.

They're the same as fried apps, except he puts them in a pot instead of a skillet and adds water. He cooks them until the water is low and the apples are tender.

We usually have them with toast, but they're excellent with sausage. They're also excellent over pancakes. And over cottage cheese -- YES! I said cottage cheese. And in oatmeal.

Yeah, I'm getting used to them. I figger I might as well.
