Savory Apple Recipes to Try This Fall — Seasonal Menu & Home Recipes for 2021Antonia Stroe
Sharpen your knives and get ready to slice up some seasonal apples. We bring you three savory apple recipes that deserve a place on your table this fall.
Apples are at the top of our favorite scents this season. From the easy apple pie to the legendary spice cake, fall’s most-beloved crop presents us, yet again, with endless culinary possibilities!
Before we go into our favorite seasonal apple recipes, we thought about providing our readers with some amazing apple nutrition facts and health benefits to make you all the more determined to use up that fresh batch ripening on the counter.
Apple Nutrition & Health Benefits
Let’s kick it off with the nutritional values. A single medium-sized apple contains:
- Approx. 95 calories
- 0 gram fat
- 1 gram protein
- 3 grams fiber
- 19 grams naturally occurring sugar
- 25 grams carbohydrate
Truth be told, these numbers don’t tell us much right away. So we’ve compiled a list of the incredible health benefits that an apple-rich diet can bring you.
- Despite being a low-calorie snack, apples are very filling and support healthy digestion (owing to their high fiber and water counts). This makes them an excellent addition to a correct weight loss diet!
- Although they’re rich in simple sugars, their glycemic index (GI) is quite low (according to Healthline);
- The pectin (a type of soluble fiber) found in apples prevents constipation and lowers LDL, the notorious “bad” cholesterol;
- They’re rich in phytochemicals, which are compounds believed to protect cells from damage that could further lead to cancer;
- Apples also contain the immunity-boosting Vitamin C;
- Polyphenols, mainly contained in the apple’s peel, have antioxidant effects. They also lower blood pressure and risk of stroke;
- Apples support the “good” gut bacteria, which means they’re great natural probiotics!
Now that we have enough reasons to cook with apples (besides their deliciousness and taste variety) let’s check out four savory apple recipes that should make it on your table this fall, be it at home or in a restaurant!
4 Season-Ready Savory Apple Recipes
Staying healthy is a top priority this month, and apples have surely proven their worth! So if you need some inspiration for your home-cooking or seasonal menu, you absolutely must try these four fall-friendly, savory apple recipes.
This easy-to-bake, classical Cinnamon Apple Cake had us on the first bite! It’s fluffy, tender on the tongue, and brims with fresh, savory apples. The best part? It’s topped with a delicious crunch of cinnamon and just a drizzle of sweet frosting!
Ready to level up your apple game and sweep your clients off their feet? Ten years of being a top-order at Andrew McConnell’s Melbourne restaurant surely tells us something about this savory apple recipe! Cutler & Co’s Apple Terrine features burnt-butter ice cream, oat crumb, and a terrific Butterscotch sauce.
We couldn’t help but add this fabulous Rustic French Apple Tart to our fall restaurant must-haves. Drawing on the simplicity of home-baked pâtisseries, it consists of a thin layer of cinnamon-baked apples on the top of a buttery, flaky crust. It makes one think “cozy,” and your diners will surely appreciate every savory bite.
Fall can feel a bit dreary without a Homemade Apple Cider! It’s warm and delightfully sweet, leaving a sensational spice aftertaste on the tongue. For the tastiest results, use strong-flavored apple varieties like Granny Smith and Honeycrisp (which, by the way, you can quickly grab online from DineMarket).
Go #Local: Why Locally-Sourced Apples Will Always be Better
It’s certainly not the first time we insisted on cooking with locally sourced produce. Let’s face it: none of these apple recipes can deliver that savory punch when you bake with months-old apples.
Local, seasonal produce is not only delicious but also much cheaper than fruit which travels long miles to reach your home or restaurant.
The best part? You don’t even need to make that market trip to get fresh apples! DineMarket can be the source to discover and purchase peak and local apples to restaurants and consumers in the Tri-State Area. So if you own a business in NY, NJ, or CT, browse our great variety of baking-friendly apples and order on our website.
