Wrinkly Old Apples

I found some old apples in my basement refrigerator drawer. It's just what I need. More food storage spaces in obscure places. These were so wrinkly they were a little hard to peel. But I pushed on. Nobody can call me a quitter. No sir.

Caramelized Apples
A great side dish.
Serves 4

5 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
2/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter

Placed prepared apples in mixing bowl. Add sugar and gently mix. Melt butter in a skillet over medium high heat until bubbly. Add apples. It is best if they are in a single layer. Allow the sugar to melt and apples to brown. Gently check with a spatula. Once they have browned, turn them over with a spatula. Keep cooking them until the apples are browned and the sugar is caramelized. Total cooking time is about 30 min. Be careful not to burn the apples. Reduce heat if necessary. Serve immediately.

Caution: melted sugar is very HOT! That tip brought to you by my tongue. Did I ever mention that I was kick out of Girl Scouts and asked not to come back because I couldn't stop licking the cookie dough?
