Hey Pocket Change Gourmet friends! I’d love to introduce you to our newest team member, Marcia. We are thrilled to have her on our team. Marcia is a Mom to 2 little girls, lives on the West Coast and absolutely loves cooking for her family. Today she is sharing her love for apples.

Apples are incredible. They are crunchy, some sweet, some tart, some a wonderful balance of both. They are fantastic eaten whole or cut into slices. They can be dipped with numerous things – peanut butter, caramel, marshmallow crème, whatever you fancy really. They can be cooked down and made into sauce. They can be squeezed into juice or cider. They can even be made into butter. They can be baked into pies, crisps, tarts, and even more savory dishes like pork, chicken or beef. They can be fried. They can be sliced onto a ham and cheese sandwich for a uniquely sweet and savory flavor. They can be cooked, canned and saved for later.

We have the privilege of having two apple trees on the property where we live. The trees produce the most wonderful apples. After my daughters and I picked a huge box of them, they gave off the most fragrant aroma in our kitchen. We took a bag of them to a friend we went to visit several hours from us.

I’m surprised the apples made it to her because they made the car smell so good, my girls wanted to eat them all on the way. I honestly wish our trees produced all year round. I went to go pick some apples the other day and they were ALL gone! Thankfully, our other tree is still producing, but I was so disappointed to realize our season is winding down and I’ll have to go back to buying them at the store soon.

I am reading the Little House on the Prairie series to my girls before bed. In one of the books it talked about a family eating fried apples and onions. I made a mental note, “try that soon…” I ended up making pork chops and pairing it with fried onions and apples. My husband asked why we hadn’t thought of doing that sooner. It was quite the tasty combination.

We have lots of amazingly delicious apple recipes! Check them out for some fresh ideas. Try something new and surprise your family tonight.


Main Dishes with Apples

Well apple harvest is in full swing here in northwest Indiana so there’s going to be plenty of opportunities to get to the orchards and pick a peck or two of our favorite varieties. We’ll be gathering some for everyday eating and then of course there’s bound to be an apple crisp or apple butter made in the next week or so.
