It is apple picking season! Take advantage of this amazing, versatile fruit while it’s in season with these delicious apple recipes for eating, snacking, and sipping!
A couple of weeks ago, we packed a picnic lunch and headed out to an orchard to pick apples. The trip was a lot of fun for everyone, and we came home with TWO BUSHELS of apples!
Of course, now we are enjoying apples for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Not to mention, snacks in between and even as slushies after a hot visit to the park. It’s a good thing we all enjoy apples…
There is no way that we would be able to eat all those apples before they spoiled, though, so there has also been a LOT of applesauce and apple butter making, drying the apples, and gifting treats.
You might think that after dozens of jars of apple butter and applesauce making their ways into our freezer and friends’ homes, we would be out of apples. But, not at all. Note to self– two bushels go a loooonnnng way.
I will definitely be making a lot of use of these apple recipes, and I hope you will too! I have not tested all the recipes, but I looked through all the ingredients and preparations, and I tried to select recipes that were on the healthier side (no processed ingredients, minimal sugars, etc), and were mostly simple to prepare.
In addition to curating a list of 50 delicious apple recipes, we have been busy testing recipes of our own too! Gluten-free apple brownies made in a blender and cooked in the Instant Pot, healthy-ish apple fritters for breakfast, spiced apple steel cut oats, and an old family favorite side dish– roasted butternut squash and apples.
Each of these recipes will be shared in the next few days, so definitely pin this post and then check back for the new recipes. I will also be doing live videos on Facebook highlighting several of these recipes, so click over to Facebook and “Like” This Pilgrim Life if you want to see the videos when they are shared.
P.S. You can save your apple scraps and make apple cider vinegar! Find the full instructions on The Prairie Homestead.
