Fried Apples and Bacon (1927)

"Select good tart apples. Peel them. Cut them in 1-inch cubes. 

"Fry the bacon in a heavy skillet. As soon as the slices of bacon are crisp, remove and drain them on clean brown paper and keep in a warm place. Leave about one-fourth cup of bacon fat in the skillet and fill it up with the apples. Sprinkle on two or three tablespoons of sugar. Apples fried this way require more sugar than ordinary fried apples.

"Cover the apples. Cook slowly until tender. the remove the cover and turn the apples gently, so the pieces will keep their shape. Let them brown lightly. They are almost transparent.

"Place them on a hot platter, and surround them with crisp bacon."
