Preparation time: 7-10 minutes
Cook time: About 5 minutes
1 large red apple, cored and finely chopped — about 1¼ cups total
2 medium jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped — about ¼ cup total
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
⅛ tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. lime juice
Brown sugar, as needed or desired
This recipe is perfect for potlucks or if you find yourself hosting an apple-themed party. The combination of sweet and spicy elements makes this treat especially tasty. While the recipe ambiguously calls for “red apple,” I have historically used Red Delicious apples for this dish.
First, prepare the apples and jalapenos by coring them and chopping them into small pieces. Second, heat your burner and evenly butter your pan. Once the apples and jalapenos are sufficiently chopped, add both into the pan and fry for approximately 3 minutes, or until the ingredients soften.
After the apples and jalapenos are fried, add in the honey. Be aware that if you are using a very viscous honey, the ingredients may clump. I have experienced this using pure clover honey. After stirring, add cinnamon, lime juice and crushed red pepper. Fry for at least one minute longer.
At this point, perform a taste test, use brown sugar to lower the spiciness to a comfortable level if needed, and serve with either store-bought or homemade cinnamon chips.
