CBS, Your Carolina: National Apple Month

It’s National Apple Month! This morning we celebrated on CBS WSPA, Your Carolina with some delicious ways to enjoy apples – other than apple pie. 

The essentials:

An apple a day keeps the dietitian away, a good source of fiber and vitamin C. Did you know that there are over 7000 varieties of apples? I love honey crisp but have never met an apple that I don’t like. Everyone needs an apple wedger —  especially in the fall! They create perfect wedges and protect you knuckles. Great for dipping into almond butter or if you’re feeling seasonal you can do a warm caramel dip. 

Move over apple pie:

Instead of apple pie, opt for apple cinnamon oats aka fall in a bowl. Use your pressure cooker or sous vide to cook your oats for a hands-off meal that cooks itself when you are getting ready for work. My go-to recipe for two: 1 cup oats, 1 diced apple, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon, 2 cups water, 1 tbsp ghee.

If you are not an oats person, try WAFFLES! I love a good apple cinnamon waffle topped with sautéed apples in ghee, cinnamon and sugar. Search the blog for my go-to recipes. You have yourself another easy, delicious, apple-packed breakfast. 

Time for a Cocktail:

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere! I shared a 3-Ingredient Sparkling Apple Hot Toddy made with a serving of brandy, a little honey and sparkling apple water. Simply heat over the stovetop and serve with cinnamon sticks and apple for garnish. Cheers to apple month!
