Apples have been one of my favorites to eat and bake with since childhood. Just type the word “apple” into my blog’s search engine and you’ll get a sense of why. The smell of cinnamon and caramelizing apples coming from the oven-makes me feel all warm and happy. Nothing better.
When L and his Dad went hunting in September, my Mom-in-law and Z helped me with apple baking.
I am so excited Z is old enough to join in the process this year. He was such a big helper peeling and coring almost all of the apples-and we are talking a lot of apples.
A big batch of granny smiths and pink ladies filled up 5 apple crisp tins.
We also made one Gluten Free, Organic, no white sugar crisp using organic granny smiths and pink ladies to enjoy with family over the weekend.
But that’s not all. We also made two batched of oatmeal apple muffins. One for my mom-in-law: organic, gluten free, no white sugar with more pink ladies. The other batch was for the rest of the family to share; we used some local semi-tart crisp apples.
Do you have a favorite fall smell or flavor? What does fall smell or taste like for you?
