Last weekend Jed and I made a surprise visit back home to Iowa for my mom's birthday and a trip to my favorite apple orchard! It was the perfect day to pick apples. The place was packed and the crisp air was delicious. The staff at Wilson's were busy making fresh apple cider doughnuts and apple turnovers. I had to try both, of course! I came home with a handmade basket and a bag of windfall apples.
Last night I baked a few apples for an after dinner snack. They are simple to make: Core the apple and fill with a small pat of butter, a drizzle of honey (or brown sugar if you prefer), a few shakes of cinnamon, nutmeg and a tiny pinch of salt. Wrap in foil and bake for 1 hour at 350°F. Place in a pretty bowl and eat it as is or you can add a dollop of whipped cream if you like. We had ours plain and it was perfect.
