Recipes to Get Apples Into Every Meal
It's said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but that’s only one reason to embrace fall by using the fruit as a core ingredient for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Kick off the season with Bobby Flay's Belgian Waffles with Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Butter and Sauteed Cider Apples (pictured above), and then move on to juicy pork chops, butternut-apple soup and more savory and sweet apple harvest recipes.
This balanced soup combines fruit, vegetables, toasted spices — fennel, coriander, chili powder, cinnamon and red pepper flakes — and crunchy candied walnuts.
Sparkling wine and apple cider are the best friends you've always wanted. Infuse the cider with a kick of spicy ginger, cinnamon and cloves, and then forget all about mimosas for a few months.
Crisp-tender fennel and apples are the perfect bed for juicy seared pork chops. The best part is that this recipe takes only 30 minutes from pan to table.
