With fall here, these baked apples would really bring the season into your home. Just looking at these photos makes me think of that sweet, cinnamon smell when the apples are baking in the kitchen. Better than any candle, that’s for sure! We are blessed a with a local orchard that has been a well known family business in our area for almost 60 years. We can watch the apples we pick grow from start to finish. They use less or no pesticides whenever they can, so our family knows that we can trust the fruit we get locally.
Be sure to head to a local orchard to pick fresh apples for this recipe. It’s fun to pick them with the family, and the recipe will be even better if you’re using food you picked with your own hands!
