Apple season! And yes, if you were here with me in real life, I would be acting just as excited as I sound.
Apples are absolutely one of my favorite foods. They might be the perfect food: filling, sweet, tart, crunchy and local (if you’re lucky). There are so many wonderful varieties of apples, but I think I’ll dive into that another day on the blog.
Now is the perfect time to head to your best farmers market or orchard and grab every crisp apple variety that you have and haven’t heard of.
Without further ado, here are 6 apple recipes that will help you make the most of this blessed apple season.
