September 28 - October 2, 2020: What to Cook with Apples this Week

We’re presently at peak apple season and if you went apple picking over the weekend (or simply bought a bushel during your grocery run), we know you’re looking for a few good recipes. While apples obviously shine in desserts, they’re pretty great in savoury dishes, too.

Monday: Cream of Radish and Apple Soup

If you’re all about soup during the fall months, you’ll surely succumb to this autumnal delight. When pairing sweet apples with another fall ingredient, peppery radishes, you’re left with this colourful, creamy and well-balanced soup.

Tuesday: Sautéed Chicken Livers with Apple and Sherry

We know: Chicken livers aren’t an ingredient that tends to garner raves from your loved ones. But that’s because you probably weren’t cooking them right! This recipe will change the way you view chicken livers, because they absolutely shine with sautéed apples and wilted spinach.

Wednesday: Open-Faced Tuna and Cottage Cheese Sandwiches

For days when cooking up a whole meal feels like a hassle, a hearty sandwich is usually the way to go. This patty melt-inspired version, with tuna topped with a gooey blend of cottage and mozzarella cheeses, will win over the entire family, particularly with the addition of tart green apple.  

Thursday: Apple, Walnut and Bacon Green Salad

This popular salad makes for a great meal on its own, or as a side with your preferred protein. It is the perfect blend of flavours and textures, with Cortland apples, candied walnuts and smoky bacon giving this dish its crunch.
