The following comes from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Farmer Boy.” The original was made with bacon drippings, but this recipe was changed to use butter or margarine, according to RecipeZaar.com. “I’d think a sweet-tart cooking apples, such as Jonagold, Gravenstein, or even the tart Granny Smith, would be best for this recipe,” the site suggests.
6 medium onions, sliced and separated into rings
2 tablespoons butter (or use bacon drippings for more authentic flavor)
6 medium red apples, cored and cut into 1/4-inch wedges (use a more tart variety of apple, such as Fuji)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onions in butter for 15-20 minutes.
Add apples and top with brown sugar. Cover and cook 3-4 minutes or until apples are tender.
Makes 8 servings.
