You may have noticed that the apple deals have begun! Yay! I'm a big fan of apples. I eat at least an apple a day, as long as we have them around the house. And, they are a staple around here. My children like getting apple sticks at a morning or afternoon snack. As far as I'm concerned, few things top eating apples fresh. However, there are lots of things you can do with apples. I encourage you to take advantage of the apple deals you see! This week Sprouts has organic Pink Lady apples for only $.69/lb. I noticed that this coming week, they will be on sale for $.99/lb. That's still a very good deal when you consider how much organic apples (or fruit of any kind, for that matter) cost!
So, as we enter into apple season, also known as Fall, I thought I'd share a few ideas on how to use all those apples without getting tired of them! 🙂
It's Fall and it's apple season. Enjoy the comfort and yummy-ness of hot apple pie! Why not?
Apple-Cheddar Cheese Snacks
I was in a line at the airport once when someone shared this idea with me. I think we were talking about apple pie and the woman in front of me said she uses a recipe that includes cheddar cheese in her pie. I hadn't heard of the combination. She encouraged me to simply try apple and cheddar cheese together and see how good it tastes. I gave it a try and thoroughly enjoyed it. It makes for an easy, nutritious snack.
Chopped apples taste great in salad. Toss them in a spinach salad–or any green salad–with some walnuts, in a chicken salad or even potato salad or coleslaw (if you're still making those “summer” foods).
Make some apple chips. I've thought about it but haven't done it…yet. Here's a recipe that looks easy and healthy.
What's your favorite way to eat apples?
