Ah, Autumn. The season of crisp leaves, and even crispier apples. But after being subjected to the great flavors of Fall year after year, they can manage to become, dare I say, dull. Here are a few uses for those amazing apples I’m sure you enjoyed picking from your local apple farm.
1. Apple butter
For, you know, to spread on different types of breads, or if your me, everything.
2. Apple-infused vodka
Our 21+ readers have to take advantage of this one. No worries, thank me later.
3. Healthy dessert
Cut the apple in half and scoop out the core. Then fill it with dried cranberries, raisins, and nuts of your choice. Drizzle honey along the top, and sprinkle on some cinnamon.
4. Good ole apple juice
Okay, so apple juice isn’t exactly innovative, but store bought apple juice doesn’t even compare to fresh, pure apple juice. That’s a fact.
5. Apple Chips
These are super easy to make and are great snacks for enjoying the fall breeze outside.
Your childhood classic PB&J just got a fall makeover.
7. Apple Salsa
The sweet and spicy flavors together are amazing. And it’s not that complicated to create.
8. Caramel Apples
Autumn and caramel apples are just connected. There’s no way to separate the two. Plus, the messiness only adds to the fun of making them and the deliciousness of eating them later.
9. Grilled Apples
Slice some apples up and throw them on the grill. They make an excellent side to chicken.
Yup, you can make it yourself and it doesn't have to say Mott's on the side. Slice and boil the apples until they become a lovely mush, then feed it through a food mill and add sugar or maple syrup and some spices.
