I mentioned here that I may be getting sixty pounds of apples in my co-op order this week. (UPDATE!!! Click here to see if the apples all came in or not!) If they all actually come in, I have no doubt that they will all get eaten. The kids love snacking on apples…they are SO nice to have on hand! The apples I mean. Well actually, the kids are pretty nice to have on hand too.
I ordered twenty pounds each of Gala (my favorite!), Yellow Delicious and Spartan. I’ve never even heard of Spartan apples before. Have you? Are they good? I ordered them because they were $11 for 20 pounds!!! I can’t wait to try them (if they come in)!
Here’s a very simple apple idea we’ll be snacking on with all of our apples:
Cinnamon Apple Toast
Place slices of bread on a baking pan. Butter each slice. Lay three or four apple slices on each piece of bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Broil Cinnamon Apple Toast in the oven for 2-3 minutes.
So simple, your bigger kids can help you or make these themselves!
Other ways to eat apples…
- My kids eat them big, in slices, or cut into chunks…depending on what Mama has time for. :)
- Applesauce Bread
- Apple Fruit Leather
- Caramel Apple Dip
- Strawberry Yogurt Fruit Dip
- Apple crisp
- I may experiment with individual apple pie pockets. Doesn’t that sound fun?
