We visited an apple orchard this week and I went a little overboard . . . .

So far I've made applesauce, the Gingerbread Apple Pie from Vegan with a Vengance (really, really good), and my Apple Crisp recipe:

Apple Crisp
This quick and easy dessert is very low in sugar and contains lots of fiber.

6 cups peeled, cored, and sliced apples (6 to 8 apples)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon water or apple juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup, brown rice syrup, agave nectar, or honey
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Topping:
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter or oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup, brown rice syrup, agave nectar, or honey

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly oil an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish. Toss apples with lemon juice, apple juice or water, sweetener, and cinnamon. Spread in bottom of pan.
Mix oats, wheat germ, nuts, spices, and salt in food processor with metal blade or by hand. Heat butter or oil and mix with sweetener until smooth. Add to oat mixture and stir until completely combined. Cover apples with topping. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Serve with your choice of topping (page xxx).

Makes 9 servings


I feel like doing some more experimenting . . . Anyone have some good apple recipes to share?

we made apple butter w/ black strap molasses and date sugar and tons of cinnamon - it really turned out yummy and we really don't miss the sugar at all. we also went overboard at a harvest fest so we made lots of apple butter and then we will bob for apples at halloween. lots and lots of apples.... the apple crisp sounds great we'll try that too.

That sounds yummy. Did you cook it down in a pot or bake it?

I made Apple butter yesterday... very easy....

I cut the apples into 1/4 and decored them and threw them in my crockpot. I used probably 10 small apples. Then I poured about 3/4 inch of apple cider in the bottom of the crockpot and sprinkled cinnamon about a tsp, a bit of ginger, and a few carrdamon pods in. I topped it off w/ a 1/2 cup brown sugar and a drizzle of honey and let it cook (w/ the lid vented) all night, about 10-12 hours. I let them cool and the pulled the skins off and ran the mushy apple and sauce at the bottom of the crockpot in my blender for a few mins. YUM YUM YUM! I'm going to can it and use it as Chrismas gifts.
