16 Interesting Apple Recipes to Try This Fall
Although apples are available at the grocery store year round, they are in season in the fall. If you live in an area where you can go apple picking, I highly recommend you grab a basket and head to the local apple orchard. When you return home, use the apples to make a feast of apple-themed dishes. Everyone knows that the sweet, tart fruit is downright divine in classic apple pie form, but did you know that it also makes a cooling and creamy cole slaw? Or that it adds a delightful crunch to quinoa and roasted eggplant salad? Apples are truly a versatile ingredient. Here are 16 interesting recipes to inspire you to experiment with the fruit soon.
Seek out small apples when making this stunning entrée of roast chicken with apples and oranges. The chicken is slathered in an herb butter seasoned with chives, thyme, oregano, parsley, lemon zest, and garlic. When it bakes, the butter seeps into the skin, resulting in super-moist chicken.
A galette is a fancy French term for pie. The freeform dough is more rustic than the dough of its American counterpart, but the apples are more precisely arranged. Don’t even think about not making the maple-whipped cream. It’s so good you’ll want to spoon it fresh from the bowl into your mouth—no galette necessary.
If your work lunch has been boring lately, make a big batch of this healthful salad tonight and enjoy it for the rest of the week at your desk. The vinaigrette is a spice-infused emulsion of oil, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, cloves, and cumin seeds. It’s works wonderfully with the nutty quinoa, hearty eggplant, and tart apples.
