Autumn Love : Part 2

I love apples. Last week after going to the orchard for Addison's birthday we did lots of baking with apples.

One evening, Addison and I made an apple pie, one morning before school we made apple cider jelly, and another morning we made applesauce.


Yummmy! We aren't sick of them yet.
Do you have any other apple recipes to share? I would love to hear them!

I rather like them baked with some raisins and brown sugar in the middle and then eat them with a dollop of creme fraiche. Autumn really does have the best of everything, we will probably have an apple based desert every Sunday until Christmas now. I have 3 trees in the garden, two of them cooking apples so we have to make the most of them.

Your pie looks fabulous.

Isn't it fun to be baking with apples again? We also like to make apple crisp and apple muffins.

I've no recipes to share, unfortunately, but I did want to say the apple cider jelly in particular sounds delicious. Uhm, I could spread that on the crisp bread I keep on hand and taste New England, for sure!

Making crock pot apple butter is our fall tradition - this recipe is great but I only use about 3 cups of sugar.

I love fall apples! An easy one that we do is to very thinly slice the apples, place them on a buttered frozen pastry sheet, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and bake. Mmm...

Missy said...

Here is a link to an Apple Cake that sounds delicious. A friend of mine used to make Apple Cake every fall for a playgroup our kids were in together. It was so good! I'll have to find the recipe.

mmmm...it all looks delicious! I unfortunately have no recipes but apple crisp is always yummy. Looks like you're having a wonderful autumn so far!

Apple pancakes. I am a fan.

Steph said...

You can tell we're both in the gorgeous part of the world where apples thrive! I, too, am in apple heaven.

We have been so spoiled by my hubbies assistant. She made us an apple pie and then sent home a whole bushel of apples from her neighbor's yard. We haven't been to the orchard yet but I think it may be in the cards this week!

Yummy photos. Wish I had a good recipe to share. I am going to check your comments for some!

A great non-traditional apple recipe that is super-easy and a fave of mine is Curry-Apple Soup.

It's 3 apples and 1 large onion chopped up and sauteed with a little butter and flour. Add 2 cans of chicken broth (I like the low-sodium kind)and 3 tablespoons of Curry and bring to a boil. Let it cool a bit and then pulse in a blender. All done!

It's one of those "Fall Weather" soups that's like baby food for adults and is GREAT with a dollop of sour cream.

There is always my favorite, apple krisp! My mom used to make baked apples by putting a large marshmallow in the spot the core was in and putting brown sugar on top of that.

Love all the apple recipes! But right now I am in love with your chocolate zucchini cake. My daughter and I made it last week and it was consumed very quickly :)!

Chris said...

Mmmmm, How about Apple crisp? Thats my favorite!

That apple cider jelly looks so great! I love apple cider in the fall with doghnuts!
