Crab Apple Liqueur
Several years ago, a good friend gave me a bottle of her father's crab apple liqueur for Christmas. I loved it! When we moved into the new house, there were two trees that, in the spring flowered and smelled amazing... one was a May Day tree and the other, you guessed -- a crab apple tree. I spent all fall researching exactly what to do with the little crab apples. I had to do something! They were so beautiful!

Day 263: Grapes and Toast with Apple Jelly - Dinner With Julie
Sick today. Full body mutiny.

Easy Crab Apple Cider
We came home with two bags of crab apples from a friend's tree last week and I got busy trying to find good recipes to use them up. I tried a crab apple bread but it just tasted so-so to me (I think next time I'll finely chop them and put them in a banana bread for a better taste…
Mini Apple Dumplings - Say Yes
Whatever happened to apple dumplings?!? Seems like canned pumpkin products, donuts, and apple crumbles pushed them off our fall cooking agendas and I would like to personally see to it that this injustice is made right because these things are amazingly delicious, especially in a mini form. Plus they are so easy to make compared …
