5 Things to do with all those apples you picked
So you went apple-picking. Now what? You have 14 bushels of the midwest's finest fall bounty, and you can only give so many gift baskets. Try taffy apples, juggling and these other ideas.
A recipe from reader Carmen Tibbs: "One of our favorite fall treats is our annual trip to County Line Orchard in Hobart, IN to pick apples. After eating our fill of apples, apple donuts & all sort of other apple-icious treats, we head home to begin our own tasty treat making."Get cooking!
Create a simple taffy apple craft that you and your child can enjoy all season long.
After you explore the stars inside each apple, cut three or four different kinds of apples into small slices and let everyone try a piece of each one. Each taster can choose their favorite one.
Teach your kid to juggle
A talent like juggling will get your child far in life. And by life, we mean dinner parties 20 years from now. Still, a worthwhile investment, if only for the family memories you'll make learning how to juggle together.
Your kids will be doing cartwheels of their own for these sweet snackables. Toss into a Ziploc bag for lunch or have them ready for an easy after-school snack.Get cooking!
