Apple recipes you’ll fall for

With orchardists right in the middle of apple harvest season (ourselves included!), it’s a great time to check out some new recipes to make the most of this year’s crop!

Inspired by a truly mouth-watering list from BuzzFeed, “28 Ways To Eat Apples This Fall” and a recent post by Bon Appétit, “How to Eat Apples for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and more” we wanted to highlight our favorite apple recipe for each course: appetizer, entrée and dessert.

Appy – Kohlrabi and Apple Salad with Caraway

We’re always surprised at how rare it is to see apples heavily featured in salad dishes; they add crunch, color, and a nice juicy taste. The obvious drawback is that even a little browning really takes away from the eye-appeal…what good is a salad that doesn’t look and taste fresh? In any case, until Arctic® apples arrive, there’s a few imperfect ways to temporarily slow the browning reaction, and it’s worth the extra effort for this tasty dish!

Runner-up – Apple, Rosemary, and Olive Oil Flatbread

Entrée – Apple Bacon Grilled Cheese

The most complete meal? Nope. The healthiest option? Definitely not! But there’s just something about the combination of apple, cheese and bacon that seems so right. It’s easy, only has a few simple-but-delicious ingredients, and a simple name to go along with it: The ABC Grilled Cheese.

Apple Galette

Runner-up – Apple Cider Pork Chops with Caramelized Apples 

Runner-up #2 – Whole Wheat Autumn Apple Pizza 

Dessert – Apple Galette

It’s hard to improve on a classic like apple pie, but one way to do it is by making something just as delicious – but easier and more convenient! That’s one of the key advantages of Arctic® apples, and it’s also what this apple galette accomplishes (forget easy as pie, it’s literally easier than pie!). You can see how delicious it looks for yourself in the attached photo, kindly provided by Culinary Couture.

Runner-up – Baked Apple Cups

We hope you’ll be able to try out a few of these on your own, especially if you’re looking for a new recipe to share with your family over Thanksgiving. If you do, let us know in the comments below how it goes or if you have any other apple-themed recipes of your own that we should try!
