A few days ago, we went to an apple orchard to buy some fruit. We bought peaches, Jonathan apples, and two bushels of discounted, lower-quality apples to use for applesauce. We froze some of the peaches and the rest we enjoyed fresh. The next day, we made applesauce. It was a fun day-project!
While I’m on the subject of apples, here is a recipe for a delicious apple crisp. It’s so tasty and easy to make. You can easily double the recipe and bake it in a 9 by 13 pan. Delight your family by making this dessert sometime this autumn!
4 cups apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg, optional
1/3 cup butter, softened
Arrange apples in a greased 8 by 8 pan. Combine the brown sugar, flour, oats, and spices. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over apples and press down lightly. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream. Enjoy!
