best fall apple recipes

Apple picking season starts in September and continues until November, making it the ideal family-friendly outing to celebrate the start of fall. You can use the apples you pick to snack on, or incorporate them into a few of our favourite recipes like the ten I’ve included here:

  1. Apple Cider Pork Chops: A quick and easy weeknight dinner the whole family will love.
  1. Cinnamon-Scented Mango Applesauce: Toddlers love the taste of this brightened up applesauce.
  1. One-Bowl Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins: Perfect for stuffing in the school lunch box or serving for an after-school snack.
  1. Butternut Squash and Apple Soup: I think soup should be on the menu for supper at least once a week and this recipe is perfect for the season.
  1. Applesauce Snacking Cake: Tastes just as good in the lunch box as it does on the dinner table after a hearty Sunday supper.
  1. Turkey Meatballs with Apple Barbecue Sauce: Serve this slow-cooker dinner with rice or buttered noodles
  1. Apple and Brie Stuffed Chicken Breast: Need a guest-worthy dinner for fall entertaining? Look no further than this stuffed chicken breast recipe.
  1. Leek, Potato and Apple Soup: Here’s another season soup the kids are sure to love.
  1. Apple and Potato Pancakes: These sweet and savoury pancakes are practically perfect for any meal of the day.
  1. Turkey, Apple and Cheddar Quesadilla: Serve alongside a bowl of soup, or pack up for a picnic at the apple orchard.

If you’re unsure about which variety of apple will work best in the above recipes, we’ve also created a guide outlining the different types of apples available and what they are best used for. I always have a few salad apples, snacking apples and baking apples in my fruit basket, and use them almost daily in a variety of ways.

Oh, one more thing to note: I’m a big fan of buying bags of imperfect apples from the market or grocery store to use for making applesauce or in my baking projects. They always taste just as good as their prettier counterparts, and are both an economical and eco-friendly choice for cooking.

Tell me, how are you including apples in your baking and cooking these days?
