Love Maryland Apples? We've Got 7 Recipes!

One of the finest flavors of fall is apple! Sure, we love pumpkin, but there's nothing quite like biting into a freshly-picked and oh-so-juicy apple that was grown right here in the Old Line State. In fact, Maryland has quite a few apple orchards. Washington County holds the top spot for number of apple orchards, but they can also be found in other northern and central counties like Harford, Frederick, Montgomery, and Howard. (Be sure to check out the orchards' websites or Facebook pages to ensure you're meeting COVID-19 measures such as reservations or prepaid orders.)

Now that fall is rapidly approaching, we know that apple recipes can't be far behind. Not sure what to make with your freshly-picked bushel? Let us help you out.

Homemade Apple Cider

Drinking a mug of hot, flavorful apple cider feels like drinking the essence of fall itself. You'll impress your entire household when you whip up some homemade cider of your very own!

Slow Cooker Applesauce

No, applesauce doesn't have to come out of a jar. You can make it yourself and get even more flavor and deliciousness out of it! Perfect for anyone who wants to dig out their slow cooker this fall. 

Baked Apple Dumplings

There's a world out there beyond apple pie, and apple dumplings are a great way to capture the spirit of the classic dessert while also trying something a little bit different. Still great with ice cream!

Apple Steel-Cut Oatmeal
Okay, this one truly is healthy, and it's also full of fall flavor. You'll be ready to head to your Zoom meeting or tackle a day of yard work after you have some of this filling and tasty breakfast!
