We live in a new build house, well I say new build, it was when we moved in eight years ago. One of the first things we did to our garden was plant an apple tree. We have watched that tree grow each year hoping for apples and finally this year we got more than the three we have previously had from it.
The boys have been desperate to pick the apples for over a month and we have had to hold them back. Eventually they had a fun afternoon picking all the apples they could and eating a fair few too. MadDad had to hoist them up to pick them from the top of the tree.
So we now have a rather large pile of apples and have been thinking about what to do with them. I really wanted to make sure that we cook with them and harness the boys enthusiasm for wanted to cook with them. So here is a great round up of apple recipes

Disclosure: The fab clothes the MiniMads are wearing are from House of Fraser, as part of their Autumn Days campaign. They have been wearing them pretty much constantly since we received them and they have washed really well. We received a blue long sleeve Timberland top, yellow long sleeve Timberland top, Quicksilver boys cargo’s and twill trousers. In fact we were so impressed with the Quicksilver Cargo’s that I ordered a second pair for Mini!
Loving the turtle! Shared on G+ and Twitter, thanks for hosting!
Apple crumble is my all time favourite pudding! The turtles look so cute, def one I will be trying at toddler lunchtime!
I added some tasty and easy Apple & Cinnamon Breakfast Pancakes
I fancy the toffee apple. Made apple wine years ago
We planted an apple tree last year and were surprised by how much fruit it produced this year. Hoping for enough to bake with next year
I cannot wait to have a toffee apple, I absolutely love them but am too lazy to make my own x
Great ideas! The turtle is just too cute. Thanks for hosting. Can I also say how much I like the way you set up your link party. I have never seen a party where the latest posts are first. I look forward to checking out all the great apple recipes!
There are some great recipe ideas here, thank you Jen. Apple crumble always wins for me but I sometimes think I should branch out a bit more. xx
These links are great for us, I’m going to pin them all! We moved here earlier this year and there’s an apple tree in the back garden. We got loads of apples from it and even after making pots of chutney, apple pies and crumbles and apple sauce we still had hundreds left. I had to give bags of them away to family and friends because we didn’t have anywhere to store them.
I’m now collecting links so we can be more organised next year and plan ahead!
Ah, they look great! I need a bigger garden so I can get some fruit trees 🙂 #pintorials
