Southern Fried Apples
I love this simple dish. It pairs well with sharp cheese as an appetizer; it can be a savory side dish or if you remove the cayenne pepper it can be a sweet compote for dessert.
1/4 C Raisins
1 t Tapioca
1/2 t Apple Pie Spice
1/4 t Cayenne Pepper
1 Can Apple Pie Filling
2 T Dessert Topping
In a frying pan, add all the ingredients and slowly cook until the tapioca is clear. If you'd like to speed up this quick dish, pre-soak the raisins in warm water until they plump. You can also use tapioca starch to thicken and speed up the cooking process.
Isn't it a great feeling to find one thing that goes with everything? It's so simple. The ingredients can be a staple in the pantry for when unexpected company comes over and you're looking for an inexpensive, elegant but easy dessert.
Speaking of desserts, I like to dish this out into a shallow bowl and sprinkle with granola or use a pretty stemmed glass and layer between yogurt or whipped topping.
What other ways would you serve this multi-functional dish?
