Apples and Apples and Apples, Oh My!

When we lived in Florida, apple season didn’t really exist more than ‘SALE on Apples’ at the grocery store.  I was not raised apple picking and had never even seen a real apple tree before moving up to Northern Virginia.  I’m happy to say that we are going apple picking! I’ve learned something with having a large(r) sized family though – we don’t pick a ‘small’ amount of anything.  We hate waste.  A family of 6 eats A LOT – and costs A LOT.  I really try not to waste food.  My kids are still tiny and we already take out an entire pan of (gluten-free) chicken and veggie baked ziti in one meal.  That being said, everyone has different tastes.  Some kids like apple sauce, others hate it.  Some like cut apples, others don’t.  I even have one who won’t drink apple juice.  So before we go picking apples next week, I need a plan for the thousand apples we will be returning with.    Fresh red apples in wooden box. On wooden background. Top view   Note: We just returned to the world of ‘Gluten-Free’ for my son who has issues with it. So I’ll be subbing King Arthur’s gluten-free flour whenever possible – and egg substitutes due to his egg allergy. So basically, my recipes will vary greatly from all of these delicious ones.  I won’t lie though, I’ll be making gluten-filled, egg-filled versions for my husband and I.   Whatever, I’m a horrible mother.   File May 21, 1 50 14 PM
