    Fried Apples with Bourbon Sauce

    I "invented" this recipe last night using ingredients that were around the kitchen

    2 Large Apples (1 Sweet, 1 tart) peeled, cored, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
    1/2 C Chopped Nuts (I used Hickory Nuts but pecans, walnuts etc would work)
    1/3 C Maple Syrup
    1/3 C Apple Juice
    2Tbsp Butter
    1/3 C Buffalo Trace Bourbon
    1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (Or Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice combo)
    1 Muffin (I used an apple muffin) Split and toasted
    2 Buffalo Trace Bourbon Balls
    2 Scoops Ice Cream: I used Valentine's Bourbon Ball, but Vanilla would work

    Melt Butter over Medium High until bubbly. Add nuts, apples, spcie andsaute with agitation until apples are softened and browned, about 3 minutes.
    Add apple juice, maple syrup and allow to reduce by 1/2 on Medium Heat, about 3 minutes.
    (I like my apples firm. Cook longer for tender apples)
    Off the heat, add bourbon and mix. (Flambe, if you like, but be careful)
    Return to heat until reduced again, about 1 minute.

    Place a half muffin in a dessert bowl. Add ice cream and spoon apple/nut mixture over the top. Place bourbon ball in center.
    Serve Immediately, if not sooner.

    Makes 2 servings.

    Calories can be reduced using Light Ice Cream, Sugar Free Maple Syrup and low fat Angel Food Cake and 1/2 sugar fruit juice, but I can't think of good reason to do that.

    I'm not a cook Ed but as I was flicking through the TV yesterday I heard a chef say "I'm using Bourbon in this dish, Bourbon goes together with apples perfectly"

    I don't even remember the dish but apart from the Brit fool pronouncing it "Baawwbon" I stored the fact that Bourbon goes with apples in cooking.

    Come to think of it if an apple a day keeps the doctor away...

    I guess good whiskey really does tickle my pickle!
