Top Ten Tuesday – An Apple a Day

Top Ten {Tuesday}
As a family of four, there are very few things everyone in the family enjoys to eat. The hardest to satisfy lately is my two year old. Jed is at the stage where he only wants to eat fish sticks, dinosaur chicken nuggets, and cheese sticks.

Lately, Jed has been asking for applesauce with dinner, and he likes fresh apples too. I am always trying to offer other alternatives at meal time to get him to eat at least a few servings of fruits and vegetables per day. After this past weekend’s trip to the apple orchard, I decided to do a top ten list on ways to use apples. Hopefully we can use some of our fresh apples to make one or two ways from the list. YUM!

1. Fresh sliced apples with peanut butter
2. Southern Skillet Fried Apples
3. Mini dessert apple pies

4. Chocolate Caramel Apples
5. Apple Pie
6. Apple Cider
7. Apple Fritters

8. Apple Dumplings
9. Apple cake
10. Fruit Blended Applesauce

OK, so now I want to eat an apple.
Go figure.

What’s your favorite way to eat apples?

    Aren’t the Georgia apple houses a wonderful way to spend a weekend? We, too, went to the mountains last Saturday, and visited Panorama & Hillcrest in Ellijay and MERCIER in Blue Ridge.

    We have so many apples we could use all of your ten ways to enjoy them! I love this time of year.

    We bought apple bread & apple cider donuts from MERCIER and ate them on the way home. We’ve eaten raw apples with peanut butter and made skillet-fried apples at home. We have visions of having enough to dehydrate them. The house always smells luscious when we do that…

    OOhhhhh I love canning my own applesauce, but I’ve never done fruit-blended sauce. That sounds delicious. I’m fairly new to canning so I worry about altering recipes but I might have to try this out!

    Right now, Apple Goody. Recipe to come on RE!

    I heart apples. Canning applesauce and Apple Pie in a Jar and probably the best … Apple Butter! 🙂

    My blessings eat a bag of apples a day. I wish I would have been able to go apple picking
