Why We Love...Apples

Why We Love...Apples

Apple orchards are overflowing these days, and we couldn’t be happier. Find out our top five reasons for loving this abundant time of year.

1. Apple-Kale Smoothies

Sip your way to an apple a day—by blending the sweet-tart fruit into a smoothie. Granny Smith apples lend their juicy tang to this thick, delicious drink. And the eye-catching green hue? That’s courtesy of avocado, kiwi, honeydew and baby kale.

2. Roasted Turkey, Apple & Cheddar Sandwich

We reserve this sandwich for when apples are at their sweetest and ripest—and it’s worth the wait. We add fresh, crunchy apples into our cabbage slaw and then layer it with tangy Vermont white cheddar, arugula, mustard horseradish sauce and roasted turkey raised without antibiotics atop tender slices of cranberry walnut bread. Order yours through Rapid Pick-Up to get your apple fix even faster.

3. Apple Snacks

Slice, smear and sprinkle your way to this easy snack (or breakfast). Grab the peanut butter, raspberries and coconut flakes and watch closely.

4. Caramelized Onion and Apple Galette

This one-crust pie might look like a dessert, but bite in and you’ll discover this galette’s cheesy, savory side. Apples and caramelized onions work in sweet flavor harmony over a rich blend of cheeses: Fontina and Parmesan, to name just two. Serve slices alongside fresh greens for a sophisticated autumn dinner.

5. Apple Picking

Trust us: Find a pick-your-own apple orchard nearby and get your family on the road to it, pronto. September and October are prime months to enjoy sweet, crisp, fresh-from-the-tree apples. If you’re lucky, you may find one with a caramel apple-dipping station on site.
