A is for...

 

A is for Autumn---

The origin of the word comes
from the Latin "autumnus."
Harvest was the English name
for the season until autumn
displaced it in the 16th century.
Here in the US we flip between
"Fall" and "Autumn." I most
usually use Fall when I am talking
about the season. How about YOU?




A is for Apples---

There are so many varieties of
apples today and and not all parts
of the country have the same kind.
My faves are Golden Delicious and
Pink Lady. What is yours?

One can make many things with
apples and one of them is...

Slow Cooker Applesauce

In a 5-6 qt slow cooker, toss
together 6 lb Gala apples (about
12 peeled, cored, and cut into
1/2 in pieces), a 2 inch piece
of fresh ginger (peeled and grated)
and 1 cinnamon stick.
Cook until the apples break down

when stirred, 7-8 hours on low
5-6 hours on high. Stir in 1 tsp.
pure vanilla extract.

Makes 8 cups

  1. Around here....we all call this season FALL. I know other areas of the Country do call it Autumn. I'm not a big apple eater, but I do enjoy seeing all the nice Fall recipes that call for apples...

  2. I say Fall too, even though I think Autumn sounds prettier.

    Apples taste so much better in the Fall for some reason.
    My favorite apples are Macintosh. I've recently discovered Honeycrisp, which I also love.

    1. I agree, Fall apples are better. Must be the
      cooler weather. Yes, honeycrisps are good but
      they can be a bit pricey here sometimes.
