Gluten Free Menu Swap-apples

Melissa at Mom’s Plans is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week.  She has picked apples for this week’s theme.    Yum!  My family goes apple picking every fall (one of my very favorite things to do).  I can’t wait for this year’s trip.  It is so fun to make apple sauce, apple pies to tuck in the freezer, and Caramel Apples after we go.  I do have a few other recipes that use apples, likeCinnamon Apple WafflesWhole Grain Apple Cardamom BiscottiBaked Apple OatmealApple Pie Dip (this is so good!), Coffee Cake in a Mug with diced apples, Apple Cider MuffinsJuicy Apple Turkey BurgersApple SlawApple, Bok Choy and Carrot SlawPork Roast with Apples and Pears,Apple Strussel MuffinsMorning Glory MuffinsApple Barbeque SauceSlow Cooker Baked ApplesRed Cabbage-Apple SlawPork and Apple CurryFruit Juice Sweetened Ketchup, and also Homemade Fruit Rollups or Fruit Leather.  What is your favorite way to eat apples?  Do you have a favorite variety?
