We are headed into one of my favorite food seasons: apple season. Sure, you can eat a flavorless, waxy dull apple any time of year from the supermarket, but only in the autumn can you pick your own juicy red globes straight from the tree and enjoy them in their crisp, cidery splendor. Yum! So stay tuned on Amish365.com for a visit to an Amish apple settlement, apple recipes, and all sorts of fruity fun in the weeks ahead. But for now, I'm going to share a recipe that Rachel made over the weekend. It's not an Amish recipe per se, but I'm sure many Amish cooks would quickly embrace their recipe if they haven't already.
Bars are popular in Amish kitchens because they are a portable, versatile dessert, a favorite to plop into lunchpails or a great after-school snack. Click here for this recipe from Two Pears and Their Pod for these delicious Salted Caramel Apple Bars. The photo above is one some of the ones Rachel made. SIGH, I didn't get to the whole pan in time to take a photo, I ended up eating far more of them than I should have. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
