There’s nothing more quintessentially New England than picking your own apples at one of the many quaint regional orchards. With the season upon us once again, it’s the perfect excuse to discover new and interesting dishes to make with your apples.
It’s almost a given you’ll make Applesauce, cobblers and pies with your new bounty, but what if you’re looking for something new? Well, we have some recipes that take a new angle on apples and will knock your socks off with their wonderful flavor pairings!
For those looking for an international slant, we recommend the Curried Apple Soup. With a warm and slightly spiced taste, this treat is sure to warm the chill right out of those crisp October days.
Apples and cheddar go hand in hand. For a new twist on this traditional combination, try our Winter Salad with Apples and White Cheddar. With crisp and flavorful greens like radicchio and Belgian endive, this dish is sure to wow your next dinner guests!
A healthy and wonderful alternative to Halloween’s carmel apples are Apples Grilled in Parchment Paper. It’s much kinder on the little ones’ teeth and they’ll love opening their very own parchment packets.
If you’re looking for an appetizer with a little heat and a little kick, try our Caramelized Onion and Apple Focaccia. Hearty and filling, this dish called for just a bit of cayenne.
Our Apple Upside-Down Gingerbread puts a new spin on the traditional pineapple upside down cake and is a wonderful treat for all during the holiday season.
And finally, it’s very difficult to think of New England without also thinking of maple syrup and cranberries. The next time you have out-of-town guests, try serving Apples Baked In Maple Syrup, Apple Cranberry Pie, Maple Apple Crisp or Apple and Cranberry Pancakes to give them that unique New England taste.
