Now that the air is getting cooler, and the leaves are starting to turn just a bit, it’s officially apple season again.
It doesn’t really feel like fall to me unless I’ve gone apple picking at least once. There’s nothing quite like biting into a freshly-picked orchard apple on one of those perfect autumn days when the air is crisp but the sun still feels warm and the skies are blue and cloudless.
The question I have every year after I’ve gone apple picking, though, is: What am I going to do with all of these apples?
I always end up picking more than I’m able to eat, so I like finding new recipes and ways to use them up. One of my favorite things to do is to make a big batch of apple sauce and then divide it up into smaller amounts and save them in the freezer to take out later on. I also like to make a real food version of the sweetly spiced fried apples you can find at restaurants.
For some other ideas for real food apple recipes, I’ve gathered together a collection of more great ways to use apples this autumn season. Some of these recipes are sweet and some are savory. All of them sound delicious!
