Southern Fried Apples (Paleo, AIP, GAPS)

  • Author: Eileen Laird
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 lbs. apples
  • 2 Tbsp. favorite cooking fat (duck fat, lard, or coconut oil all work well)
  • 2 Tbsp. raw honey
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg (optional – omit for AIP)


  1. Slice the apples into thick chunks or wedges.
  2. Melt fat in large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add the apples, honey, salt and lemon juice. Toss to blend, and then cook covered for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove apples from heat. Sprinkle with cinnamon (and nutmeg if using). Toss to blend, and enjoy!


  1. These apples have a sweet-tart flavor which I prefer. But if you want the true Cracker Barrel sweet apple experience, add another tablespoon of honey.
