It’s Fall… time for pumpkin patches and hayrides, time for cardigans and boots, time for crispy leaves and bonfires.
And… time for apples!
Here in my neck of the woods, the branches of apple trees hang low, weighted down by their juicy fruits. Many people have already begun harvesting their apples — selling them at the farmers markets or pressing them into fresh apple cider.
My own apple trees are brimming with fruit — but I try to resist the urge to pick them until after the first frost. (Though my 14-year-old son goes out to our trees about twice a day to snack on our apples!)
Once picked, I have a LOT of apples to use! And, if you have your own apples, or buy apples in bulk this time of year, you’re probably looking for Real Food apple recipes, too.
