 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   lb           Bacon -- sliced
    2       lb           Onions
    2       lb           Apples -- tart, chopped
    2       tb           Sugar, brown
 
   Salt pork may be substituted for the bacon.
   
   Fry bacon slices in 12 skillet until brown and crisp.
   Set aside on a warm serving platter.
   
   While meat is frying, peel onions, leaving stems to
   hold for slicing. To prevent your eyes from watering,
   hold a slice of bread in your teeth while you slice
   the onions as thin as possible. Discard stems.
   
   Core apples and cut crosswise in circles about 1/4
   thick. Apple skins help the slices hold their shape
   and add color to the dish, so don't peel unless skins
   are tough or scarred.
   
   Drain all but 1 tb fat from skillet, then add onion
   slices. Cook over medium-high heat about 3 minutes.
   Cover with apple slices in an even layer. Sprinkle
   brown sugar over all, cover skillet, & cook until
   tender, a few minutes more.  Stir only to prevent
   scorching. Remove to warm plate with bacon slices.
   
   This is a “country” dish, seldom mentioned in
   cookbooks but recalled by many oldtimers.  Some feel
   sugar is essential; others call it a “sin.” If you
   share Almanzo’s enthusiasm you might also like to try
   fried apples'n'onions with fried potatoes for
   breakfast sometime.
   
   Here is the recipe Fried Apples'n'Onions from the
   Little House Cookbook.
