Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen has the perfect fall recipe for us!  She writes:

Autumn is my favorite time of year…when the air cools, the sun shines, and the leaves turn color. One of the first things I want to do with my children is to take them to the many wonderful apple orchards we have in our area. We pick so many that our home is bursting at the seams with apples!! Here is one of my favorite apple recipes… you will LOVE the smell and taste of this comfort dish. Add it as a side, eat it alone, or top it “a la mode” (ice cream)…. enjoy!

Water, brown sugar, flour, butter, salt, cinnamon and apples – looks like one got away in the background! Oops!

Start making your homemade caramel sauce by placing in the sauce pan the brown sugar, water, butter, salt, and flour.

Heat until bubbling-it will thicken.

Peel your apples.

Cut apples into medium sized chunks.

Pour homemade caramel sauce over the cut apples.

“Dot” with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Cover and bake in a 350 oven for 1 hour, stirring at the 30 min mark.

An amazing accompaniment to pork chops.

  1. Great minds…I just came in from my walk and sliced an apple, sprinkled it with cinnamon, drizzled it with honey and popped it in the microwave for a few minutes. I come over to the laptop to wait for it to cool enough to stuff in and what do I see? Baked apples…LOL! I will be making these with pork roast this weekend. Thanks for the yummy pics!
