As soon as the weather starts to turn a little cooler at the end of summer, we all immediately think APPLES!

I love fall, and I love pumpkins, but I definitely think apples deserve their place in the spotlight before we go full pumpkin spice all over.

Apples are such a great fruit, because they are so versatile! Enjoy them raw, or in baked goods, they are great sweet or savory – there are just so many ways to enjoy apples!

Read “How to add fruit to your dinner” for more fun ways you can serve apples, and other fruit, in your meals.

Before you start baking apple recipes with your kids, you should do an apple taste testing with them! This is such a fun activity for families to do together, and its also a great addition to homeschool unit studies!

My “Exploring Apples” taste testing activity deep dives into how to do a taste test, different apple varieties, and how our senses come into play when we taste something. Its an elevated and more in depth exploration that what you remember from preschool when you colored in a smiley face or a frown face.
