"An apple a day keeps the doctor away," or so they say. Here are some ways to get that healthy prescription in a tasty way.
You can melt caramels and skewer apples on a stick if you want, but how about this easier idea? Pick up a tub of caramel apple dip in your grocer's produce section and then nip over to the baking aisle for a bag of chopped nuts. Core the apples and slice them into wedges. Dip the wedges into the caramel and nuts, fondue style!
Much easier than apple pie this simple rustic dessert uses granola, apples, and dried cranberries. Slice the apples and toss with the cranberries into a pie dish. Drizzle with a little apple juice and sprinkle granola on top.
Did you know you can make homemade applesauce in the crock pot? Core, peel and slice apples - add a cinnamon stick or two, if you want - and toss them in the slow cooker. That's it! No need to add sugar. Set the crock pot to low and let it cook for 5 to 8 hours. Use a potato masher for a chunkier sauce, or puree the cooled sauce in a blender or food processor for a smoother finish. By the way, applesauce is delicious warm, right out of the pot!
Fill a soft flour tortilla with about ¼ cup of apple pie filling (or sliced apples and a dollop of apple sauce). Sprinkle on some cinnamon, if you like. Fold up the bottom edge of the tortilla and tuck in the sides and roll it up. Melt about 2 T of butter in a skillet and lightly brown the burrito on both sides before serving. And, yes, ice cream is a very good idea.
Core, peel, slice apples and place in the food dehydrator. (If you can find Cameo apples, or another apple variety that doesn't oxidize, you can skip the step of dipping them into water treated with lemon juice.) As an option, you can dust the slices with a little cinnamon, but they are just as yummy plain. Drying tends to sweeten the apples, so there's no need to add sugar. Dried apples are great snacks or can be chopped and added to baked goods.
Thanks for the info on apple treats. H5

Great apple list!
The apple sauce sounds fabulous. Thanks for this list.
Love them all, but carmel apples are my favorite. I always said my middle name should have been carmel.LOL
Bossy, there you go again making me hungry. We also dip our apple slices in warm peanut butter, yum!

Great list! I really prefer dipping apple slices to eating a caramel apple. Yum!
