Think baking an apple pie is complicated? The rustic pie is proof that it doesn't have to be! That's because this recipe doesn't require precision when it comes to the ingredients. Start by slicing a few Empire apples and combine them with brown sugar and cinnamon. Then spread your store-bought pie dough out on a pie dish and top with your apple mixture. You can add some spiralized apples on top if you want a lovely visual presentation! All that's left is to fold the dough over the apples haphazardly and it's ready for the oven. Bake at 350 °F for 45 minutes and you'll get a gourmet dessert. We recommend serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

A honey and apple sauce is an original way to delight the whole family. It's also easy to prepare and inexpensive. Simply dice the McIntosh apples into small cubes and heat in a pan for a few minutes while adding the honey. Meanwhile, cook your pork chops with pepper and the seasoning of your choice. We recommend rosemary because it pairs wonderfully well with the sweet taste of the apple. Once on the plate, top the pork chops with the honey and apple sauce. So simple, so delicious!

This simple recipe idea is a new spin on a classic dish! If you never thought of adding apples to your grilled cheese, you'll definitely want to now. Thinly slice a Cortland apple before adding it to your grilled cheese before you cook it. When it comes to the cheese, use your favourite but we recommend an aged cheddar or brie which pair well with the apple. You can also add caramelized onions for maximum flavour!

This soup made with Spartan apples and curry is both delicious and inexpensive. It will also quickly become one of your favourite meals. Vegetables such as squash, potatoes, and turnips pair well with the moderately acid and sweet taste of the Spartan apple. In a large pot, cook the diced, peeled root vegetables of your choice with a few peeled chunks of apple and seasoning (salt, pepper, curry). Add the chicken or vegetable broth and simmer. Pour into the food processor to get a lovely texture. Don't forget to add cooking cream for an even smoother texture. We recommend serving with an apple grilled cheese!

As a crumble, compote, or even in your salads, apples are a versatile fruit you should keep in mind when looking for inspiration. They will please both your taste buds and your wallet!
