An Apple a Day…

It’s time for another round of ABC Wednesday! Thank you to Mrs. Nesbitt for starting it up and for a wonderful team of people keeping it going!

A is for my apple tree and the apples that I have no inspiration to do anything with at present.

So time will tell if an apple crisp or an apple tart or an apple pie or applesauce is in our future! What would you make with my apples?

  1. well, no need to do anything with them now, they’re not ready! I think it would be wonderful to have apples at hand, and once I was tired of eating them raw, I’d juice them, and make applesauce. maybe little baked apple dumplings!

  2. I love deep fried apple fritters…naughty but nice, not forgetting some maple syrup,
    I would make an apple crumble for dear heart, apple sauce to accompany a Sunday roast of crackling pork loin, stuffed with sage and onion and all the trimmings !
    I rather like baked apples stuffed with sultanas and drizzled with honey and a large dollop of Devon clotted cream…..Is that enough to be going on with ?
    Best wishes,
    ABCW team.

  3. Hi Ellen

    Its strange perhaps but i don’t like apples when i have to eat them fresh from a tree, but used in dishes.. its always oke.

    Have a nice day!

  4. You already did something – you took pictures! Not as calorie ridden as apple pie!
    Although any apple treat sounds good to me now.

  5. Nice and healthy! I can not wait, they are ripe.
    Would cook them with potatoes and bacon, a Silesian meal. Have liked it in my childhood.

  6. To pick straight off a tree is a delight. All the suggestions in the comments are making me quite hungry. I’ll add to the menu by suggesting Eve’s Pudding, the combination of apples with sponge on the top is irresistible.

  7. I would definitely make apple crisp! It’s my absolute favourite dessert, served warm with vanilla frozen yogurt!

  8. Great apply post. We would make apple pies with your apples – Gwen can devour an entire apple pie within 24 hours if I let her! Or, we would just eat them from the tree. Apples are staples at our house.

    So, who is your favorite character in the Laura books? Gwen’s is Jack the bulldog for now. 🙂

      • She read to me from the Plum Creek book last night about the family ox being on the roof of their dugout. Now she has this romantic idea about living in a dugout in the woods, and asked me if I would like to live in the woods with her. Unfortunately, Mom is a city girl… ha. 🙂

  9. I would make a rustic apple pie…I did that last week and it was so tasty. Hope that they are yummy and that you can just pick them and eat them, too.

  10. Your apples are great looking. I use apples in red cabbage. Actually more apples than cabbage. I put raisins or cranberries in it too. What is apple crisp?

  11. Your apples look yummy. My granparents used to have a apple tree in there yard and used to pick them off. They were good. I would make some apple pie with thoes. Have a great day 🙂

  12. I would make all that you mentioned and apple butter! Your apples look great, we are not having a good apple season this year, and what few are on the trees the deer are having midnight snacks~smile~ Thanks for sharing.

  13. I love Apple Crisp. Though I must say I don’t think of it until later in the season … It’s a Fall thing in my mind! I like an old fashioned Waldorf salad. And apples on oatmeal or diced up in muesli. Or eaten just plain… Straight! I need to have a few in my frig at all times just in case. And that’s a habit I should break when we’re in Florida. Because they’ve traveled all the way from your State to get there and aren’t nearly as good as they are here.
