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.
