Apple Picking

Just like many others, apple picking is one of my favorite fall pastimes. I love visiting the orchard and trying the different types of apples grown each year. Last year it was pretty rainy and muddy (find last year’s post here), but this year the weather was absolutely perfect! In all honesty, I’ll probably be back to the orchard next week to pick more apples and maybe pick some pumpkins up from the patch (and of course buy more cider…yum).

With so many apples to use, I ended up making some recipes this week that I think turned out great! First there was applesauce made in the crockpot. I’m not joking when I say it was the easiest things I have ever made. The only ingredients: apples (duh), 1 cup of water, 1 tsp. of lemon juice, and cinnamon. Cut and Peel the apples, throw them in the crockpot on high for three hours and you have really tasty applesauce! It’s also a great and easy way to know exactly what is going into your food (aka no extra sugar. Apples are sweet, why add more?). Later that evening for dinner I
used more apples to make Apple and Gouda-Stuffed chicken with thyme.
