Although they are available all year round, apples are at their best around fall or autumn. Apples are a staple in our house. They make for a good quick snack and always a welcome treat in any lunch pack. But sometimes when we have bought too much and aren’t eating them fast enough, I find ways to use them up quick and the best way to do that is to cook them into something. The easiest is to simply cook them up in butter and sugar and use them to top anything as we did with the Dutch baby pancakes. You can also make apple pie or incorporate them into breads or bread puddings. This time around, I had a taste for something fried so I thought I would make them into bite sized apple fritters.
