13 Amazing (Real Food) Apple Recipes

These apple recipes look sooo good!  They all use real, whole-food ingredients too, which I love!  There are some dishes I've never seen and really want to try this fall.


It's apple season! I just got myself a bushel of apples over the weekend, and no doubt I'll be getting more before the season is over. I normally just use most of them to make applesauce (using this handy little applesauce grinder – one of my favorite kitchen tools ever!)

But I thought it would be nice to do something a little more interesting with the apples. I'm not the greatest at coming up with recipes. (When I do it's monumental, and they definitely turn into a blog post!)

But even if I'm not that great at creating recipes, I know exactly where to look to find them!

I simply ask around to my blogging colleagues, and they never fail me! Their stunning photography and their knack for creating amazing food from real, whole ingredients is just delightful!
