Country Style Fried Apples and Cranberries

The Best recipe for Country Style Fried Apples and Cranberries

A yummy Southern recipe with the added zip of fresh frozen cranberries. Crazy delicious and a side dish your guests and family will love.




  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Stir in sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg
  3. Add apple slices and stir.
  4. Add frozen cranberries.
  5. Cook until apples are tender, 5 to 8 minutes. The cranberries will start to pop.
  6. Give it a little taste to see if you want to add the salt. I feel that salt brings out the flavors of the contrasting fruits!
  7. Serve as a side dish with any meat but especially chicken, fish, and pork.


This also makes a great ice cream dessert dish. Just a scoop or two of ice cream and a 1/2 cup of the fried apples with cranberries. Yum!
