Skillet Fried Apples

recipe
Serve this versatile side dish with baked ham and cheese grits, or spoon over hot buttered biscuits. Balsamic vinegar and onion give the variation a savory note that's perfect with grilled chicken or pan-fried pork chops. Both versions are delicious sprinkled with lightly salted, roasted pecans.
