Coated with sweet caramel, white chocolate and crunchy granola, this caramel apples recipe is sure to have you back to the store for more apples!
It’s apple season and we have been making the most of it!
Several weeks ago you would have found Sonja in the trees with the kids, picking our early crop of apples.
This was a great year for our apple harvest. We really have only two productive apple trees: this Mutsu (green apples) and a red delicious. Both trees were loaded, which hasn’t happened in quite a while!
Although we were able to collect several bushels full of apples, they quickly got put to use! Every year mom makes several gallons of homemade apple cider vinegar. She also mixes them into her favorite jams and jellies each year.
