It's September and you know what that means? Apples are in season starting this month! I have put together a list of 58 of the best apple recipes I could find. Read on to pick a couple for you to make!
Nothing makes me feel more in the mood for fall than a good old fashioned apple picking day at the orchard.
Last year at this time, I was visiting Evan's Apple Orchard in Georgetown, picking SO MANY amazing varieties of apples. This year, however, I have not gotten to travel anywhere. There are no apple orchards near me, so I am sitting at home dreaming about all things apple these days.
Since I am at home and not visiting any new apple orchards right now, I thought it would be fun to reach out to my blog friends and see what kinds of apple recipes they have available.
This list contains over 58 delicious recipes — anything from sweet to savory! There is an apple recipe for everyone on this list.
