Easy Apple Recipes for Fall

0

apple recipesI love fall! We always visit an apple orchard. My kids love doing all of the activities as some of the larger orchards in the area, but I love the simplicity of a farmhouse and a grove of apple trees.

Whether you are getting your apples from the local grocery store, farmer’s market, or orchard, try these quick and easy recipes with your apples!

Tips for baking with apples

  • I prefer to use Granny Smith apples or a “pie” apple whenever I’m baking. I find that I need to use less sweetener this way. 
  • I use honey and maple syrup as a sweetener when needed. I don’t typically add much into the recipes until after I’m done and can do a taste-test. 
  • Ask the staff for help! They are so knowledgeable and I love trying new breeds of apples each year!

Ingredients
  1. 4-6 Apples, Cored and Chopped (we prefer Granny Smith)
  2. 2 tsp Cinnamon
  3. 1 T honey (add more to sweeten after cooking)
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a sauce pan with one cup water.
  2. Cook on medium heat until apples soften.
  3. Next, drain any extra liquid into a bowl (save in case your applesauce is too thick).
  4. Run the remaining ingredients for a few short chops in food processor or Vitamix until you reach desired consistency.
Notes
  1. If I need some extra liquid, I will add extra from the bowl I drained ingredients into. We love chunky homemade applesauce warm!
  2. You could also refrigerate yours and make it smooth too.
  3. Using a baking apple like Granny Smith will result in an applesauce that you won’t likely need to sweeten much or at all!
