50 Awesome Apple Recipes

50 Awesome Apple Recipes Collage

One of my favorite parts of fall is going to local farms for apple picking! It’s such a fun day enjoying the fresh air, grabbing a hay ride, maybe choosing a pumpkin and then the main event of apple picking. Even if you don’t pick your own, the fall is a great time to buy apples in larger quantities. They are in season so taste their best and usually you’ll find the best prices of the year too. If you need some inspiration for things to make with all your apples,  these 50 awesome apple recipes should help.  We have everything from breakfasts to breads to condiments to desserts.  Enjoy!

  1. My sister is coming to visit for a few days next month and we’re going to go to a farm about 45 minutes from us. Mainly for pumpkins but also for fresh apples…they taste NOTHING like the stores…so much better. I always get “too” many and now I can’t wait to make all the breakfast ideas, especially the apple sugar muffins!
