Easy Caramel Apples
Fall is Back and that Brings Apple Season. Apple season brings caramel apples!! So much to do this time of year. So, so many good things to eat.
Yesterday, I stopped at Everflow Apple Orchard and picked up some apples. I always like to pick up several different varieties and they have over 44 varieties of apples to ‘pick’ from. Plus, you get to sample as many apples as you want. I like to combine 2 or 3 varieties of apples whenever I make apple pies, apple crisp, apple pie filling and applesauce. I think combining different varieties, will make for a better tasting pie and crisps or
in whatever your making.
Everflow sells apples, pears, plums, eggs, jams, vegetables, apple cider and the absolutely best caramel sauce I have ever eaten. This wonderful sauce comes from Ecker’s Apple Farm located in Trempealeau WI. Ecker’s Apple Farm, is famous not only for their apples and gourmet caramel sauce but for their caramel apple pies, all made right on the farm. Ecker’s homemade caramel sauce is so delicious I could take a bath in it!
Bayfield Apple Fest
Today, we are on our way to Bayfield WI. We are going to the Bayfield Apple Fest This will be our first time attending the festival and we’re super stoked. The festival is located at the furthermost tip of Wisconsin on Lake Superior. While visiting Bayfield, we might take the ferry to The Madeline Islands, something I have always wanted to do.
The Bayfield Apple Fest has apple butter, apple pie,
apple cookies, apple bratwurst, apple wine and even apple ale!! To get myself “in the mood” for apple fest, I decide to make myself a caramel apple.
Prefer the Easy Way
This might seem odd but I have never liked eating a
caramel apple off of a popsicle stick. Never. Biting into a round apple, smeared with thick caramel, while sitting on a stick….Well, you get the picture. Messy, not to mention the dental aspect. Even when I was young I always had my mom take out the stick and cut it up for me. And now at my age, with my teeth…never! Even though I’m sure my Dentist would love it if I took a big bite out of a caramel apple. Cha Ching!
