National Apple Month
Tis’ the month we celebrate all things apples! Apples are finally in season and there are so many tasty varieties to try! Our local farmer’s market has an apple vendor in the fall and they have at least 15 different organic heirloom apples.
Our family loves to buy some each week so we can enjoy their crisp sweet flavors!
These 10 best gluten free apple recipes will help ensure you have easy recipes to try for National Apple Month!”
I can’t wait to share these easy gluten free apple recipes with you. When I was young, our family used to go apple picking and we would fill up bags of crisp apples. When we left, I remember always having a stomach ache from eating too many apples!
Now that we are in the California Bay Area, there really isn’t a close-by place to go apple picking. We rely on one of our favorite vendors at our local farmer’s market to keep our fruit basket full!
What can I use apples for?
This is the question I had in mind when creating this collection of apple recipes. Apples are often thought of as a lunch box or snack treat. Apples are delicious in both sweet and savory recipes!
Can you freeze apples?
You can freeze apples, but they get pretty mushy when you thaw them out. Lemon juice can prevent the apple slices from turning brown. If you want to preserve apples, try some of these easy tips to preserve apples. You can also try your hand at dehydrating apples.
What are the best apples for baking?
There are so many great apple varieties like the Gravenstein apples in the photo above! I tend to use more tart apples in my gluten free baking. Here are some good types of apples to try:
- Granny Smith
- Pink Lady
