Author Kathy Rowe gets more done by 9:00 am than most people accomplish in a day. As a retired Master Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, Kathy decided to focus her energy and determination toward crafting the multi-genre novels her readers love. Her efforts have produced novels of science fiction, suspense, and romance. And while much of the country drinks their first cup of coffee, she has already attended to her farm and her various pets. Kathy balances the joys of Kentucky farm life with her husband, and pours a life full of adventure onto the page.
Kathy also loves to cook. Farmers have access to the freshest produce and Kathy takes advantage of that. When I invited her to share a recipe with us she had to think for a minute as to what yummy recipe she would make. Kathy free-lances when she cook, like yours truly, but she measured all the ingredients for us to make sure it would turn out great. Thanks, Kathy!
What recipe has Kathy made for us? This month we are treated to her delicious Kentucky Fried Apples. What a treat! And speaking of treats, after you have perused the recipe below, please follow the attached link to Kathy’s Amazon author page and treat yourself to one of her entertaining books. Enjoy!
Kathy’s Kentucky Fried Apples
From the author … No, I’m not trying to elbow in on Col. Sanders, I just happen to live in Kentucky and make quite a lot of fried apples. It’s a simple recipe and it can feed quite a few. Great as a dessert, or if you have leftovers, you can top Belgian waffles with it the next morning.
3-4 good-sized Granny Smith apples. If you don’t like really tart stuff, substitute Golden Delicious or Red Delicious. Peel, core, and slice the apples. I cheat, I have a peeler, corer, slicer that does most of the work, then I take an apple slicer and cut them into little chunks.
¼ c Bourbon. You can pass if you’re not into the alcohol thing.
Let apples “steep” in bourbon for a few minutes in cold frying pan while you add:
2-3 Tbs butter- be generous!
3 Tbs Sugar
1 Tbs cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
Whipped cream for topping.
Fry apples over medium heat until tender. Serve up in bowls and liberally apply whipped cream. Enjoy! Makes approx 3-4 servings depending on apple size.
