Fall Apple Orchard

Apple season is in full swing so now is high time for preserving apples for the rest of the year. The list of preserved apple goodness is dizzying, but here are ten of my favorites with something for everyone, including apple jelly, jam, pickles, dried apples, applesauce, apple butter, hard cider, chutney, leather, and pectin. Whew, that’s a lot of apples! Even if you only pick a few of these fabulous recipes to make, you’ll have apple treats well into the winter.
