Personal Notes:
Serve atop pancakes with whipped cream or as a side dish. These are especially good for breakfast or with ham. Pop some canned biscuits (Grands) in the oven and serve apples on the open biscuits.
You can store apples in jars in the refrigerator for a few weeks. Warm them up in the microwave and serve atop vanilla or butter pecan ice cream. Yum!
