One of my favorite side dishes is Fried Apples.  I don't know why, but I usually only fix them in the fall.  That's the only time I remember getting them as a kid so guess it's taboo to have them any other time of year.  They are so easy to fix and I think I could eat my weight in them.  Well, not really, but you get the idea, I LOVE fried apples. 

Growing up mom always used Jonathan Apples but I have used other varieties with good results.  The only kind I didn't like the results of was Delicious Apples.  I haven't tried Granny Smith apples but would imagine you would need more sugar for them. 

I sliced a skillet full of apples (I think there were about 6 large apples).  I just wash the apples, slice them in a skillet with a very small amount of oil in the bottom and cook with a lid on till tender, usually about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.   There is no need to peel the apples but you can if you want.  This skillet is a 12" skillet and before I started cooking it was full to the top with sliced apples.  When they are tender, I remove the lid, add sugar to taste (I used about 3/4-1 cup of sugar), 1/2 stick of butter, and cinnamon (about 2 tsp.).  I let that cook about 5 minutes more and they're done.  Sometimes I serve it with ice cream or whipped topping as a dessert but usually it's just fried apples.
