Baseball, apple pie, and the American flag are some of my favorite things. When you go camping it’s hard to bring an apple pie. A great way to get that warm apple pie flavor is to cook some apples in a skillet to create the pie filling that’s oh so tasty.

Ingredients for a serving of 4:

  • 5 large apples (Granny Smith for their tartness are always good but any apple you like will work.)
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Peel and slice apples, 1/4 inch thick is suitable for easy cooking and keeping the apple soft yet not mush.

Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over grill. If you can pack it a nice cast iron skillet is the best. Weight for cooking supplies is always an issue. Place the apples into the skillet, and top them with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Mix gently, and stir every 2-3 minutes until apples are tender. Total cooking time is around 15 minutes, depending on how thick your apple slices are.

You have to plan these things, or if you are camping near stores, you can make a quick run for supplies. Not the easiest but sometimes worth it for the best eats in the woods.
