When there is an abundance of local apples, apple sauce is an easy go-to but if you want to step it up – make apple butter! Simply cook apples until they are very tender and caramelized brown. Puree or blend to use over toast, pancakes, or even use as a glaze for roasts.
Apples are delicious to eat out of hand but can also be used to make delectable snacks in various forms. Try making apple Oka bites as a fun appetizer, or try making apple leather, apple turnovers, or apple cream cheese squares!
Apples aren’t just tasty in sweet treats; they are amazing in savoury meals as well. Chicken apple sauté is tasty, easy to make and full of fibre .
