This Labor Day Weekend, my family and I went apple picking. We’ve gone every fall since I was a child and I absolutely love it. Nothing better than filling up a bushel while eating an apple or 2.
When we got home, the kitchen work began.
Apple sauce was started in the crockpot. While apple crostada was made. With some leftover crostada filling, apple crisps were made in cute containers with a quick crumb topping.
To keep up my strength, I ate peanut brittle popcorn from the market at the orchard-it was delicious!
It didn’t last long.
4 quartered and cored apples
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Place ingredients in crockpot on low for 1.5-2 hrs. Stir occasionally. Pass through food mill first using a coarse sieve and then a finer one to make a puree.
