There are certain flavors that just sing of autumn.
Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin, apple cider, honey….
Just think of a homey kitchen that’s cozy and comforting when you come in from the cool, autumn night and that’s full of heady, rich spices — these scents that sing their way into your soul.
Also, I simply swoon for caramel (as can be attested to by our Honey Caramel Apple Cider).
Thus, because I wanted an excuse to make something with apples, because I wanted an excuse to fill my kitchen with autumnal scent, and because I wanted to provide a sweet treat for my kiddos as an alternative to the processed-sugar laden options that oppress us at this time of year, I decided to make these Rustic Honey Caramel Apples, complete with gathered sticks from our yard to give them a rustic feel.
I've shared the recipe in my monthly contribution over at Traditional Cooking School by GNOWFGLINS, so if you're in the mood for a delightful indulgence at least once this autumn, head on over and get the recipe. You won't be disappointed. 🙂
