Recipe Roundup: A Bushel of Apples

We've got some delicious ways to use the dozens of apples you’ve lugged home from the orchard.
A Bushel of Apples

My son has been begging to go apple-picking since June. Thankfully, the season is finally here.

While his immediate goal is to see how many different apples he can sample straight from the tree, I’m dreaming of the ways I can use my favorite fall fruit long into winter.

Homemade applesauce is a must, lovingly slow-cooked with lots of cinnamon and just a touch of sugar. But then there’s apple crisp, apple-squash soup and even a full-scale pork and apple dinner.
