Fall in Love with Apples

Summer is over and we're all back to school and work.  I'm trying not to be bummed about the end of great road trips and lovely, lazy days lounging in the sun. It was fun while it lasted...I just wish it could have lasted longer!

But, I've found a pretty good reason to be cheerful: It's September, which means brisk, sunny autumn days are right around the corner.  And that means tasty, apple-filled treats will soon be taking over the kitchen.

Bring home a bushel (or three) and try one of these yummy recipes:

Cranberry, Apple and Pecan Crumble
Easy to make and fill with your favorite fruits and nuts.

Apple-Pear-Cranberry Pie
A fan favorite, and a stunning addition to your holiday dessert table.

You'll never buy jarred again.

Baked Stuffed Apples
A great way to use up all of those apples!

Potted Potatoes and Cabbage with Bacon and Apples
A perfect meal for a chilly day.

Beignets aux Pommes, Coulis de Fruit (Apple Fritters with Fruit Purée)
From my FCI days -- a real treat.
