What to do with apples: recipes (with links!)

Part of my love of fall is apple picking. Even though we have now found an inexpensive source for the many dozens of pounds of apples we use to make our home-canned jars of applesauce, I still have to take my family apple picking. I think it’s partly because it’s something that I loved to do when I was a child, and partly because I secretly think it’d be awesome to live on a farm. (I know, I know.)

So during fall, to try and use up the crazy amounts of apples I always buy, I can and bake and sauce apples like crazy, so we can enjoy the bounty throughout the year.


In addition to going apple picking as a fun family activity, every year now we also purchase a large crate of apple seconds from a local apple farm. We go in together on it with some family members. It’s a great way to buy the apples that we use to make applesauce and other home-canned goods. Check out some of our other recipe ideas below!
