Ryder LOVES apples. He gets so excited when he sees them! The excitement is a fairly recent development. He has always loved his apple slices, but for some reason seeing an apple has become a reason to squeal for glee these days. I love it! So I am really looking forward to our annual trip up to Cris and Mike’s to go to Anderson Apple Orchard. He had fun last year, but I can only imagine how excited he will be this year to run through the orchard and see all the apples. And we might climb a tree or two in the process. (Although, I am still trying to figure out how to do all of my favorite fall agri-tourism activities and you know…have a baby…all within the month of October. Wish me luck! :))
Since it isn’t quite time to head to the orchard, I didn’t have near the selection that Anderson’s provide…they seriously have more apple varieties than I ever knew existed! This recipe called for 3 lbs of cooking apples. I had NO idea what cooking apples even were, so I Googled it and wrote down the different varieties that were listed. When I went to Ruler, they did not have any of those on my list, so I just grabbed a back of Golden Delicious. And man were they delicious in this Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apple Sauce!
