12 Ways to Use Your Apple Picking Haul

Tell us you went apple picking without telling us you went apple picking. I'll go first.  Standard apple orchard photo shoot front and center on my IG grid with 50% of my kids smiling thanks only to the promise of some good ol' fashioned screen time on the way home.  Classic fall nostalgia.  Oh, and then there is the 30 pounds of apples at home because it seemed like a good idea *at the time*. 

Fear not, I've been there, done that and have a bushel (!!) of favorite apple recipes included below to prove it!  Everything from snacks, to beverages, to desserts and even weeknight dinners, here are 12 of my favorite ways to make use of all of those gorgeous fall apples.

If you make any of these dishes, snap a photo and tag us #feedfeed @thefeedfeed on Instagram for a chance to be featured. Happy cooking!

Runamok Maple Syrup 

This is the very best organic maple syrup of the season. Runamok tastes each run and when the flavor is at its peak their sugarmaker sets it aside with a note: 'Reserve for Sugarmaker’s Cut'. It has always been reserved for friends, family and ‘those in the know.’  Use it to drizzle on top of all of those delicious apple pancakes, waffles and oats!
Jem Organics Cashew Cardamom Almond Butter

Name a more iconic duo than apples and nut butter, I'll wait! Cashew Cardamom Almond Butter is every cardamom-lover's dream come true. This ridiculously delicious nut butter is best drizzled on fruit, atop a smoothie bowl, or just spoon it right out of the jar. All of Jem Organics nuts and ingredients are stone-ground in order to create their signature smooth and creamy texture. JEM Organics is USDA Certified Organic and their nut butters use only the finest, ethically sourced ingredients.
