APPLES! We love them.
The fact that it’s turning the corner into fall makes me even more excited about apples, because suddenly the scents of apple-cinnamon everything is everywhere. YUM!
I make my fair share of apple pies and apple sauce, and I’ve even made savory dishes, like this pasta, that include apples.
And coming up next week, I have a new recipe to share that uses the items you see below!
I’m very excited about it, and so is my daughter—it’s one of her very favorite lunch items.
But first, I have a fun new partnership to tell you about!
For the next year, I’ll be working with Kauffman’s Fruit Farm & Market out of Bird in Hand, Pa., not too far from where I live in north central Maryland. It’s a family run operation in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Dutch Country.
Kauffman’s “Family Orchard” products have been recognized and enjoyed since the early 1900’s. Founder Amos L. Kauffman planted the first fruit trees in 1911, and today the 3rd, 4th, & 5th generations own & operate the business.
Their orchards produce fruit from over 135 trees on 100 acres. and you can get to know the whole Kauffman clan by clicking here!
So, here’s how it’s going to work: each month, I’ll get a box of fruit (and maybe other goodies), with which I’ll come up with a fun, seasonal recipe that’ll be easy for you to make, too.
For August, my shipment included apples, apple butter and a package of apple schnitz (which my husband devoured before I was able to grab a pic).
September’s included apples, plums (my daughter couldn’t get enough of these), and some of the juiciest and sweetest peaches we’ve ever had. Be on the lookout for a new recipe next week!
Check out the Kauffman’s Fruit Farm & Market Harvest Calendar to get a general idea of when certain fruits are in season (even those they don’t grow themselves), and be sure to take note of their physical farm market’s details if you’re in or around Lancaster County, Pa.
Stay tuned for more!
Disclosure: As a Kauffman’s Fruit Farm & Market ambassador, I receive one box of their fruit and/or market items per month for free. All opinions are mine!
