From corers to food mills, and pie plates to food storage, we’re here with everything you need to make a better pie, better apple chips and even a better batch of applesauce. Can’t decide what you’re in the mood for? Follow the chart below for inspiration.
Lattice Apple Pie
With a bunch of apples on hand, apple sauce is your best bet (and it’s not just for kids – pork chops, anyone?). We use a sugar-free recipe if we’re using a sweet variety and add nutmeg and cinnamon to the pureed apples.
We add cardamom to these thinly sliced vegetable chips; it gives it a nice peppery hint and pairs pleasantly with sweet-tart apples. If you don’t have cardamom, cinnamon will do the trick when it comes to apple chips.
Apple Potato Tian
Alternating between thin slices of apples and sweet potatoes brings this tian together. To ensure even cooking and uniform shapes, slice the vegetables between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick using a mandoline.
Mini Apple Crumbles
Perfect for serving at dinner parties, we took a classic apple crumble recipe and made it mini for these baking cups.
Have only a few apples on hand and want to do something easy with them? Baking your apples is your best bet. Core, sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg and bake for about 40 minutes. They’ll come out soft, juicy and made to serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Apple Grilled Cheese
Cheddar cheese and apples is a favorite combination of ours. We like to lather our bread in mayonnaise before grilling both sides.
In the same vein, goat cheese and apple gives us all the feels. We use this pizza recipe to get a nice fall meal on the table.
