Apple recipes

Ahhh, apples. Though they’re seasonal in the fall, apples store well, making them available for recipes all year long. That makes them one of the most popular fruits around! Once the weather gets cooler, we start craving those traditional apple recipes: apple pie, apple crisp, and applesauce. Fall isn’t complete without a trip to our local orchard: leaving us with lots of ripe, crisp fruit for making all the apple recipes!

Here we’ve collected all of our favorite ways to use apples in recipes. Many are sweet, but there are lots of ways to eat apples outside of desserts. Throw them into salads, eat them sauteed with cabbage or roasted with cauliflower, or blend them into an electric green smoothie as a healthy breakfast. The sky is the limit with apples, so…why don’t we get started?

And now…our top apple recipes!
