fall’s fave fruit

applesGranny Smith. Gala. Fuji. Pink Lady. Red Delicious. There are so many types of apples, and they are great for so many different many reasons. Their flavors range from sweet to tart, and they can be enjoyed raw or cooked. I like them in salads, pies, jarred as preserves, or just sliced up and dipped in peanut butter.

The key to a great apples is firmness, shiny skin and without bruises. The best way to store them is in a plastic bag in the crisper. Don’t store them near other foods with strong odors, they absorb them! I usually make at least 2 apple recipes every fall, below are some of my favorite recipes, along with some I plan on using, featuring none other than fall’s fave fruit: le pomme.

  • My roommate’s amazing pumpkin soup is choc full of squash and apples and is the perfect fall pick-me-up
  • I would really like to try a version of this turkey recipe for Thanksgiving this year. Rosemary and cinnamon are some of my all time favorite spices, and I think with a lot of butter and some GF stuffing, this turkey could be one for the family recipe book.
  • This recipe for baked apples is so comforting, easy and delicious, it tastes like apple pie just without the crust. This one is also great because you can change it up, switch out your favorite nut, add or subtract granola, or add different sauces.
