This Saturday is the first day of fall, and what does fall mean? Apples. Now, I know we can get apples year-round, but fall is apple season. This is their time to shine. I love picking apples at apple orchards. I usually buy so many I have to use them in recipes so I can eat them all. Do you do that too? AllFreeCasseroleRecipes.com and FaveHealthyRecipes.com have many great apple dessert recipes that you can make with all those apples. They look yummy and scream “fall.”
Unfortunately, this is a bad year for apples in the Midwest. The drought and extreme heat this summer caused a shortage of apples. Because of this, many apple orchards are not letting the public pick their own apples. Rob Schultz from the Wisconsin State Journal reported that apple orchards cannot afford to let people pick apples themselves because they can be wasteful. When picking a good looking apple, others may fall to the ground, and never get eaten.
Luckily, they are still selling apples and, of course, grocery stores have a large supply. So don’t worry, you can still get your apples this year. And once you get them, try these sweet recipes.
