Looking for some apple recipes? I personally bought two boxes of apples from Azure Standard in the past two months. I deliberately bought more than we could eat right away, so that I could freeze, dry and ferment the rest for later months.
Storing away seasonal food does help save money. If you purchase your groceries with what is on sale in bulk, use some and then preserve the rest for later, you will save money in the long run. Some of these recipes are for preserving and some are for using, now or later.
I love to chop up apples and stir fry them with cabbage and coconut oil, or even add them to a sweet potato hash for a nice fall lunch. But, there is nothing like a nice big pot of applesauce cooking on the stove on a fall day. Our family loves apples and we eat them up all year round.
In an effort to find some great apple recipes and ideas, I went Pinterest crazy and made a Pinterest Apple Recipes board if you want to check it out. I listed some of the recipes I found here if you want to look at some of them.
All of these apple recipes are general preserving recipes. You make them and use them as side dishes or in other larger recipes as you go through the rest of the year. We can a ton of applesauce to help us get through those spring months when apples are harder to find.
