20 Apple Recipes That Make Fall Cozy and Warm


No Comments

What’s the first thing I do when I enter the great state of Vermont? I pick apples.

What’s the last thing I did when I left Vermont yesterday? Yes, I picked apples.

Well, I didn’t actually pick them.

I darted into the Upper Valley Food Coop in White River Junction, Vermont and picked up many half-pecks of Empire apples, Gala apples, Honeycrisp apples, and even Gingergold apples.

What will I do with all of them?


Hmm, most of them will be eaten up, just as they are – perfect, sweet, and tart. But I’m also making a batch of apple butter later in the week; dipping them in Jessie’s coconut caramel sauce on the weekend (and the chocolate dip, if I must); and shredding them into 1/2 cup portions for sweetening all my autumn-ish smoothies.

I will also pile them into every salad this month, like I did with this one for the makers at our pop-up market last week. And, no doubt, I’ll make a dairy-free version of this Apple Cinnamon Tray Cake this week, top.



I made some Apple Cinnamon Scones while up north this past weekend, and now I’m on an apple-cinnamon kick. I’ll make sure to add shredded apple to my soon-to-come-to-life Apple Butter + Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Jars.

After all, double the apples are double the fun.


Before I go, I compiled a list of all of our best apple recipes ad my favorites from across the web. Because I’m here to help and encourage all the apple-loving. It’s like Food Gift Love, just Apple-Love!
