Pumpkin flavored anything is my favorite! Its one of the best things about fall. As soon as the leaves begin to show their vibrant colors and that crispness is in the air, I am after those pumpkin flavored everythings! This is a simple pumpkin flavored muffin with a topping of finely chopped pecans, honey, brown sugar etc. to give it a pop of fall flavors.
This apple cobbler is the third recipe I make to use my fresh-picked apples straight from a local orchard. My Granny is such a wonderful cook. This Apple Cobbler is her original recipe. A favorite childhood memory of mine is playing at her house and eating....
Granny's Apple Cobbler
A great recipe for your fresh picked apples!
Use enough apples to fill a 9x13 pan. Toss apples with the sugar, salt, lemon juice, and flour. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Stir together the topping ingredients.
Sprinkle the topping over the apples in the 9x13 pan.
Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until apples are soft and topping is starting to brown.
Each Fall, I pick 20 lbs. of apples at a local apple orchard. That's a lot of apples for a family of 3. I manage to use every single one of those apples. My second go-to recipe is applesauce.
This homemade applesauce will make your house smell soooo good!
Place apples in a large pot on your stove and sprinkles with lemon juice.
Add remaining ingredients to pot and stir.
Cover pot and bring to a simmer on medium heat.
Allow apples to simmer on low stirring occasionally until softened and falling apart. May use a potato masher, I like leaving some chunks in mine.
I have three go-to recipes that I make every year after our apple orchard adventures. One of them is crock pot apple butter. I love this recipe! Its very simple and you can adjust the ingredients to your taste. I start it early in the day and leave it on low in the crock pot for several hours. It makes the entire house smell SO good!
Crock Pot Apple Butter
An easy crock pot recipe that will make your home smell amazing!
Peel, core, and cut apples into 1 inch chunks. Fill crock pot to the brim.
Combine remaining ingredients and pour over apples.
Cover and cook on low until apples are very soft and take on a smooth texture. This takes several hours (5-8). Stir every hour or so and apples will begin to get mushy.
You may use a potato masher if need be. Enjoy!
