Apples Apples Everywhere

Here in Connecticut, Fall has arrived. Families are going to the orchard and joyfully picking apples. It’s all good family fun, until you get home and realize you actually have to eat them all.

The good news is that, most of the time, freshly picked apples will keep for weeks. Keep them in a cool, dark and somewhat ventilated place and they may last even longer. But even so, the apple supply can be a tad overwhelming.

Here are a few suggestions (gleaned from previous posts and from other food bloggers) for making apples easy to eat and exciting even when you’re near the bottom of the giant pick-your-own bag:

Sliced apples with honey
Sliced apples with carmel sauce or delce de leche
Sliced apples with cheddar cheese
Apple Flying Saucers
Sliced apples with Mud Dip
Sliced apples served alongside Honey-Roasted Pecans
 or Halloween Mush
Warm Apples Over Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt
Microwaved Apples
Fried Apple Rings
Apple Crisp Cookies
Grilled Sausage and Apple Kebabs

Please share your favorite way to use up lots of apples in the Comments. Thanks!

  1. Last year I made apple bread (basic quick bread with shredded apples), but it only uses about 1-2 apples. Applesauce is the best bang for our buck in that we use up LOADS of apples. We use the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook as our starting point, and we usually skip the sugar. I also send my 4yo to pre-K with diced apples and pears, and he thinks this is really cool (go figure). Last but not least, I used a recipe from the 365 day crockpot site for butternut squash soup with apples. Very yummy!

  2. I was looking for a recipe for turning the half bushel of apples currently residing in the bottom of our fridge into applesauce. Imagine my joy when I followed the link in your post and discovered it was in fact possible to turn too many apples into honey-roasted-pecans! I was really starting to get fed up with apples and absolutely love pecans! Thanks! ;-) p.s. I really would like the applesauce recipe too though, just in case that recipe doesn’t work for me!

  3. You are SO right that little face was meant for the creama! She is just plain precious! You did an amazing job capturing all of her adorable expressions. The colors and light are just perfect!
