Tasty Tuesday: Reaping the Apple Harvest

We love apple picking around these parts but what do you do with all those yummy apples, besides eating them right off the tree? Here are some of our contributors favorite uses!

We go through apples fast! My kids are part fruit bat and just love eating them. However my husband has a insensitivity and really needs the apples cooked to enjoy them with out getting sick. So we have been trying all sorts of recipes besides my tried and true apple pie recipe. This week we made this apple tart

Martha Stewart Rustic Apple Tart

Rustic Apple Tart

It might be the easiest dessert to make ever, 20 minutes tops to put together. It uses a frozen puff pastry and only 3 apples. We made this with empire apples form Heinz orchard and the verdict was ….ooooooh Appley goodness!


Kate made a Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie that is both tasty and easy.

Her family’s favorite is to saute them with butter and cinnamon. There are so many ways you can use them after that to top pancakes, waffles, crepes or oatmeal for a warm and yummy breakfast. If dessert is more your thing you can put it on top of ice cream or eat it plain.

The Thomas family is a little more savory than sweet. They like to use them in Soup and Apple Pecan Salad.

Kristy  sticks with the tried and true applesauce but likes this recipe for mixing up the flavors.

Last but certainly not least Hyacynth likes to wake up to a crock pot of warm apple pie oatmeal 

Are you hungry yet? You still have a short amount of time to get out and pick some apples, see our reviews here and be sure to check the orchards website or call ahead. Some of the smaller ones are already done for the season.

What are you making with your fall bounty?
