It’s that time of year again: days are steadily getting shorter, the leaves on trees will soon be changing, and sweater weather is around the corner. It’s apple picking season!
You know what that means…
Apple pie, apple sauce, apple chips, apple butter, apple streusel, apple everything.
While there’s much to love about bringing home a giant bag of apples, sometimes we end up with so many that we don’t know what to do with them. So they sit there, on the counter, slowly softening until we decide they don’t look good enough to eat anymore---so we throw them away.
Little do people know that there are actually plenty of ways to turn your leftover soft and bruised apples into delicious new creations.
Here are three oh-so comforting apple recipes that deliver more taste, less waste and all the pre-fall feels.
Snack time just got even more delicious with Chef Cuisto’s healthy, homemade apple sauce recipe (the kids will really love this one!).
*If using a stand blender to purée, make sure to hold the lid tightly closed since blending hot foods creates pressure and can cause the lid to pop off.
Chilly nights call for curling up on the couch with a fuzzy blanket and this warming apple tea from Tasty. Tastes great straight up or with an extra splash whisky for a makeshift Hot Toddy. Makes two 8 oz cups.
Sweeten up your mornings with Rougemont’s silky smooth apple butter recipe. Perfect to lather on toast or muffins.
