					                What to Do With All Those Apples after Going Apple Picking

One of the most beautiful times in New England is during fall season ~ crisp air, bright blue
skies, and colorful foliage. And one of the greatest family traditions in New England is Apple
Picking. It is so easy and fun to fill that bag with beautiful, juicy apples! Once home, it is also
fun to make something with those delicious apples. At Parlee Farms, we are always creating
new recipes with our fruit. We are sharing a couple of our favorite fall recipes and hope that you
enjoy them! Remember, apples need to be refrigerated to stay fresh. They will last a couple of
months or longer if they are refrigerated.

APPLE-CRANBERRY BREAD

Yield: 1 9x5” loaf

Ingredients:

1 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. (1 stick) butter or margarine

2 large eggs

1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

2/3 c. sour cream

1 c. fresh chopped & peeled apples

1/2 c. whole or sliced cranberries (fresh or frozen may be used)



Preheat the oven to 350. Working with an electric mixer, combine the sugar and butter and
blend on low speed until incorporated. Increase mixer to 2nd speed and beat for 1-2 minutes or
until light and fluffy. Back on low speed, add the eggs and blend thoroughly. In a separate bowl
combine all of the dry ingredients and add these to the mixer alternately with the sour cream,
blending well after each addition until a smooth batter is formed. Gently mix in the apples and
cranberries and pour batter into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes or just until the
center tests clean with a knife or toothpick. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before
turning loaf out of pan.
HOMEMADE APPLE CRISP

Yield: Approx. 6-8 servings

Ingredients:

Topping:

1 c. all-purpose flour

1/3 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. light brown sugar, lightly packed

1/4 tsp. salt

1 c. old-fashioned oats

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 stick (1/2 c.) + 1 Tbl. butter or margarine, at room temperature

Apples:

6 c. peeled and sliced apples

1/4 c. granulated sugar

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350. Combine all of the topping ingredients in a large bowl and blend well
using your fingertips until a nice moist crumbly mixture is formed. In a separate bowl toss
together the apples, sugar, and cinnamon until incorporated. Pile the apples into a shallow
baking dish – the apples should be slightly mounded over the top of the dish. Cover the apples
generously with the crisp topping, covering fruit completely (if any extra topping remains this will
store well in the refrigerator or freezer!). Place crisp on a baking sheet and bake for 50-60
minutes or until apples are tender, top is browned, and fruit is bubbly.
