    Apple recipes? Going apple picking on Sunday

    Shop Now
    Hey guys,
    I'm going apple picking on Sunday in Wisconsin. What are your favorite primal apple recipes? I'm totally open to any ideas because, seriously, there's only so much fresh apple sauce I can make (and by apple sauce I mean stewing chunks in a pot with spices. Yum!)

    I have one on my blog (link in sig) for apple butter. I should have a recipe up for baked apples soon as well.

    I like sliced apples with some raw, chunky almond butter on it.

    My mom also makes a great apple crisp with them. You can't go wrong with fresh-picked apples! Any idea what type you're getting?

    I posted a recipe for baked, stuffed apples with blackberries earlier. Would be yummy with yoghurt or heavy cream (if you do dairy)!

    haven't posted the recipe myself yet, but i've been enjoying this lately:

    1 cooking onion, 1 apple, 2 slices bacon, few portobellos (optional): fry bacon until almost done. add onion, then apple; cook until onion is carmelized. add mushrooms if using; cook until everything melds together. delicious!

    My father grows apples (cookers and eaters) - though you take your life in your hands picking 'em - the wasps ALWAYS seem to get there first! Not good when you're allergic (not in an anaphylaxis kinda way (the only time I had that was when I swallowed one aged about 5 (it was on my ice cream and I didn't notice!)) but the stung limb will swell up to about 5 times its size and remain that way for about a fortnight! Piriton does b*gger all!)

    They've not managed to get all the plums this year, though!

    someone on here suggested this to me and I've been eating it pretty regularly ever since: Apples fried in bacon fat!
    I just slice up the apple and toss it into a hot pan with the fat and sprinkle it with a little pumpkin pie spice (I like the ginger so I use pumpkin spice, but you could use apple pie spice or just cinnamon). flip when the bottom starts to get soft and serve with the leftover grease pored back on top. also good with a little whipped cream.
