The Apple Appeal
Parfaits, bisques and salads! The possibilities are endless when you have a couple of apples on hand. We’re sharing a few of our apple-based favorites to sweeten up the fall season.
Caramel Apple Pecan Parfait
This seasonal treat is sure to give you a boost. Perfectly roasting the apples before assembly is key. Toss and coat two cups of Granny Smith apples with a mixture of sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Slide into a hot oven and bake until tender. Let cool, assemble and enjoy.
Pumpkin, Sweet Potato & Apple Bisque
From the sweetness of the apples to the heartiness of the sweet potatoes and pumpkin, this autumnal soup from our partners at Rich’s covers a lot of ground when it comes to fall flavors. This dish doubles up on the apple with the addition of two Fuji apples and a cup of apple cider to give your tastebuds a warm hug.
Apple Pecan Salad
Who doesn’t love greens and grains with a hint of sweetness? This salad blend is tossed with diced Granny Smith apples, chicken, quinoa and roasted butternut squash. Top the mix with a home-made sherry vinaigrette that adds a touch of savory appeal, and a handful of chopped pecans for a bit of crunch.
