Wondering what to do with all those fresh-picked apples? Here’s a recipe the whole family will love! Plus, it makes a great gift when stored in a cute jar! Easy to make, apple caramel is great drizzled over vanilla ice cream, yogurt, sponge cake, and French toast. You can also use it as a dipping sauce for fruit, or to elevate your pork chops!
For a touch of sweetness and tartness, add apples to your recipes. Cauliflower, carrots, sweet potatoes, parsnip, and squash all go great with apples. As for spices, try adding a dash of curry, cumin, coriander, or ginger—they all do a nice job of highlighting the delicate apple flavours.
For a quick and easy dessert, try making microwave crisp . . . in a mug! Simply combine diced apples and maple syrup in a mug, top with a mixture of oats, flour, brown sugar, and butter. Bake in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes and you’re done! You can also try making it with other fruit, like pears or blueberries, or try adding nuts or cinnamon to your crumble.
Apples and cheese go hand in hand! Try making a grilled-cheese sandwich, blue cheese and nut salad, pancakes, Oka tart, apple and cheddar muffins, or simply put together a platter or apples and cheese.
