Apples! Apples! Apples! Oh My!

We went apple picking in August this year. We once again traveled up the road from my in-laws and visited J and A Orchard. Last year one of the owners told us to come earlier in the season to get different varieties of apples. Boy, did we find a different orchard. The variety was larger and the quantity was larger. Last year it took us much longer to fill our 1/2 bushel bucket...but this year it was pretty hot and muggy.

So we returned home with our 1/2 bushel bucket. What to do with all those apples? Last year I swore that I would be better prepared with a recipe and action plan. Good intentions. Maybe next year I will accomplish the apple preparation prior to the pick. I made several batches of crockpot apple sauce, apple spice snack cake, apple pies, and pumpkin applesauce muffins. Yum!! Get out and pick some apples of your own this year!
