Baseball, apple pie, and the American flag are what I love. When you are camping it’s hard to bring an apple pie with you. A great way to get that warm cinnamon apple taste is to cook some apples in a skillet so you get that 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 good 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, 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.
These are things you have to plan ahead, 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.
