|Addie & me|
We walked away with 20 pounds worth of apples.
We went home after a trip to the Farmers Market and I immediately whipped together an apple crisp for a party later that evening. Also, because I wanted to make sure Addie had the opportunity to taste the yummy apples, I decided to make some applesauce that is both parent and kid friendly (no sugar added). I've included both recipes for you to try out and, as always, both are so simple to make.
Apple Crisp (Too excited to snap a pic)
6 cups apples sliced thin
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter, melted
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c flour
1/3 cup butter, softened
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine first set of ingredients and pour into a greased 8" pan/baking dish. In a mixing bowl, stir second set of ingredients until crumbly. Pour over apple mixture and bake for 45 minutes. Note: If you have really juicy apples you may want to add a couple tablespoons of flour to the apple mixture.
4 apples, peeled, cored and diced
Cinnamon to your preference
Toss diced apples into crock-pot. Add desired cinnamon and cook for 2 hours on high in crock-pot. Stir periodically.
