Trula’s Fried Apple Pie
My Grandma Trula was raised in Tennessee, and she had that southern charm you always hear about, and she had it in spades. I spent a summer with my grandma and grandpa and I will never forget the way that she would go around the table, making sure everyone had enough food. “Do you need more beans? Here, have some more cornbread?”
We are celebrating apples this month, and I can’t think of anything more fitting to share than her fried apple pies. She always made them with these amazing homemade canned apples. Unfortunately I never learned how to make the those apples before she passed on, but this recipe still always makes me think of her. Plus its tasty, and quick to make.
Cut up two apples into 1/4 inch chunks, and fry them up with a tablespoon of salted butter over medium heat. When the apples are tender, add 1/8 cup brown sugar and a healthy shake of cinnamon. Keep stirring until the brown sugar incorporates into the butter and apples. Scoop the apples out of the pan and place them on a flour tortilla. Deglaze the caramelized sugar left in the pan with 1 tablespoon of butter. Fold the flour tortilla in half, and fry each side until its a nice caramel brown. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and you’re ready to eat. Enjoy!

We were out exploring the Hudson Valley last weekend, and visited a couple of inspiring establishments with tasty offerings, Lagusta’s Luscious & Tuthilltown Spirits. Both are super conscious companies that source many of their ingredients from their surrounding community, and it was a fun surprise seeing that they support each other as well. Bourbon and chocolate, enough said…
