A is for Apples…and Applesauce!

Is it fall where you are?

Today was the first day for us. It’s hard to believe summer is officially over and I’m guessing that before we know it, winter will be knocking at our doors.

I haven’t shared any of my favorite blogger’s posts for a long time. When I saw Jenny’s post about this homemade apple treat, I thought it’d be a perfect way to celebrate the changing of the seasons.

She’s very nice and has some amazing recipes on her blog if you’d like to have a look. She even offers gluten free and vegetarian options, too. Love that!

Thanks, Jenny, for letting me share your wonderful writing and recipe.

Happy Fall! I was saving this post for tomorrow, the first day of fall, but I just couldn’t wait!

I love applesauce. There, I said it. Actually wrote it, but you get the picture.

I have written before about having been a picky eater as a child. Applesauce was a daily staple in my diet. My mom was actually very smart about feeding MANY picky eaters (I have 5 siblings and we all had food quirks, allergies or sensitivities). She always included bread and butter on the table at dinner, and usually served a veggie tray with pickles and carrot ribbons too (or a bowl of homemade fridge pickled cukes and onions). Then there was the ever present applesauce. There were definitely evenings where my dinner consisted of a butter sandwich with applesauce and carrot ribbons on the side.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I would love a sweet snack like that now!

    Sweets, I won’t get back to you before tomorrow or Sunday, I think. I’ve been crazy busy yesterday, and today, on my favourite homeworking day (I usually do Tues or Weds and every Friday), I had to drive in to work to pick up a company laptop because the files I need to review are restriced (which is actually nothing out of the ordinary) and someone messed up the access thingy, so I can’t access them from outside the network (=from my own laptop) or whatever. :(
    What a waste of time! On top of that, the company laptop was in quite a state and I had to wipe it down twice. And guess what – the @ key isn’t working on that laptop… Aaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!

    I’ll see what I can can get done today. I have blog posts scheduled for tomorrow morning and Sunday evening, and you’ll hear from me in between. Sending you hugs and kisses. xoxo

    • Hi Sylvia! How are you? Getting unpacked?

      We are apple fans, too. Hoping to find an orchard and go pick some. Wish we were in Iowa, my grandma’s farm is full of apple, pear, and peach trees! Yum! :)

      Hope you have a wonderful day!
