You may think olive oil is to pasta what pumpkin spice is to fall, but we’re suggesting another amazing flavor for olive oil and fall: apple.
With fall just a couple weeks away, apple orchards will soon be bustling with fall-fruit fanatics. (Read on to find a Kansas City-area orchard near you.) Today, we’re featuring flavorful fall recipes featuring fruit — apples, that is, and a refreshing change from any and everything pumpkin spice-flavored.
First in our apple spotlight is this flakey, fruity Apple Crostata with Apples, Dates and Grana Padano from our recipe collection. This pastry is great for special occasions, like a fall family get-together or Halloween party. It could also serve as a delicious dessert option for Thanksgiving!
The next recipe we encourage you to try is Olive Oil, Honey, & Apple Cake, which The Pickled Plum recipe blog describes as the adult version of your grandma’s sweet apple pie.
Another pleasing-for-the-season recipe is With Food + Love’s Apple Cranberry Crisp with White Wine + Olive Oil.
Whatever recipe you decide to try, you could opt to pick farm-fresh fruit at one of these apple orchards near Kansas City.
