It is incredibly tempting to load up on apples at this time of year. Everywhere you turn, there are options to buy bushels of them. And if you take a day to go to a pumpkin patch or an apple orchard, there is no way that you’re leaving without a few pounds of the sweet, tart, crisp beauties that are in season right now. Even a recent trip to Costco left us with 18 beautiful apples that were too cheap to pass up.
But even for us — a family of four — it can be hard to consume that many apples before they start to go bad. What to do? Desperate to not contribute to the huge food waste problem in our country, I set out to find some recipes that would put my plethora of apples to good use. My kids wouldn’t be able to escape my creations: apple muffins for breakfast, applesauce for snack, apple crisp for dessert.
If you need some yummy ideas for your household, then look no further. Below you will find both sweet and savory options to satisfy any appetite.
