Out and About: Apple Picking and Sauce

Fall is here! Hooray! This is my absolute favorite time of the year. Here are a few reasons:

– Foliage
– Hoodies (I love even more when I can pair them with flip flops)
– Pumpkins
– Crisp air
– Fresh picked apples
– Cider
– Cider donuts

Ok ok ok. Enough about why I love Fall. But as you can see, my list pretty much sums up why you should love Fall 🙂

Last weekend Mr.NN and I decided we would go apple picking. Wanna know a little confession? This was my first time. Yes ladies and gentleman, I had never been apple picking before. Of course the day we pick to apple pick it’s 85 degrees BUT I was not going to let that ruin my outing. The orchard was gorgeous and surprisingly not busy. Nothing would have annoyed me faster than trying to beat down someone for an apple I spied. Well….I probably wouldn’t “beat down” someone but I might grumble loudly 🙂 This would be a good time to point out that I have very little patience when it comes to dealing with people in large crowds. Just thought you might like to know that 😉

So after an hour of picking random apples and filling our bag we decided it was time to call it a day. However, we wanted to make sure and stop and pick up some cider before we left. Can I just say it was some of the BEST cider I have ever tasted. It was ice cold and tasted just like biting into an apple. Now I have over 20 pounds of apples sitting in my kitchen. I certainty was not going to let them go bad so I decided to make some applesauce. I did a very easy simple recipe that really has very little directions.

Applesauce:

– Peeled, cored and cubed apples
– Apple Cider
– Cinnamon sticks
– Whole cloves
– Whole star anise

Put apples in whatever size pot you would like. Pour in apple cider until it reaches about 3/4 of the way over the apples. You don’t want to submerge your apples or your sauce will be way too thin. Throw in your whole spices and cook on medium heat for approximately 30 minutes until your apples are soft. Take out the whole spices and use a potato masher and smash the apples in the pan until you reach a smooth consistency. Then let your sauce bubble a little longer in the pot, pull off heat and enjoy.

– I made a 5 quart pot of apple sauce and I used three whole cinnamon sticks, 5 cloves and 2 star anise. Feel free to use more or less depending on the amount of sauce you are making.

    I would be happy with just that maple mustard as well…but the turkey is the cherry on top. YUM!

    I definitely need a panini press! But, I’m wondering about making it with a waffle iron. I think it just might work!

    I have a lot to say about this –
    1. Brie and fruit are like the best combo ever
    2. You got the Panini, perfectly toasted (an art in my opinion)
    3. Sandwiches never look pretty but somehow you managed to make this Panini a beauty!
    4. I want to eat this, everyday for lunch(minus the mayo because I have a mayo aversion but that’s besides the point) Can you arrange that? 🙂

    This beauty is popping up all over Pinterest so I just had to stop by and see it for myself! It seriously looks absolutely mouthwatering. Love that you added apples. I just picked close to 30 lbs worth at the orchard so now I know what to do with them 🙂

    Girl this is one serious panini. You have some major talent making sandwiches look so inviting. I just want to sink my teeth into this panini, like immediately. Why, oh why, do I not live closer to you.
