Going through my Google Reader and immediately came across this post on Rum-Raisin Apple Butter and Easy Apple Butter Toffee Cake.
Holy cow. I already had apples on the brain after my morning post, and now I’m downright hungry.
I had been laying off the apples while they were out of season, and those few early apples that we bought at the farmer’s market went primarily to the kids.
Suddenly it has hit home how long it’s been since I’ve had apples in any kind of quantity, and now I’m just planning to go on a mad apple binge. Ravenous for apple goodness.
(Quick funny: We were in the car driving to the beach and Jeff kept saying how ravishing he was. He meant ravenous, of course, possibly mind-melded with famished, but he gets grumpy when he’s hungry so I didn’t correct him. “I am ravishing. Completely ravishing.” Later he denied that he was hungry at all. He was merely pointing out how lucky I am to be married to such a stud.)
What’s your favorite way to take advantage of the fall apple harvest?
Please share… I’m all about the apple crisp but we love trying out new recipes!
P.S. I tried to just annex this to my last post but the “edit” function only brought up the photo, no text, and I was leery of messing with it. Anyone else experiencing Blogger troubles this week?
