Apples are plentiful now. Fall apples are crisp, plump and kissed in color by our wonderful sun and coolish evenings. Our favorite are the Honey Crisp variety. One of the reasons we love them is that they create that wonderful and juicy crunch sound when you bite into them. And they maintain their freshness a good amount of time. An added benefit is they do not turn brownish when cut, so if you find that you cannot make your way through one, like me, you can put it in a container in the fridge and they are almost just as fresh when you go back to finish up.
Today we are making homemade applesauce. We actually like the sauce slightly chunky. So we do not cook the apples too much. We add Lemon juice, cinnamon and honey. Maybe a little light brown sugar. Can’t wait to taste. And we have enough apples that we will make an apple crisp with granola over the weekend.
We love the recipes of our wonderful fall season. Bounty in real wonderful fibrous fruit. YUM!
