Five ways to celebrate the arrival of apple season.

September 18, 2017

Can't Miss Meals

It’s September, which means one thing (okay, it means a lot of things): apple season has arrived in Baja Arizona! Locally grown Arizona apples are smaller, denser, and more flavorful than those grown elsewhere, and we love their unique qualities. Eat these locally grown apples by themselves, or turn them into delicious pies, scones, and sandwiches.

Cinnamon Apple Pie

What’s more classic than an apple pie? This 100% from-scratch pie yields a buttery, flaky crust filled to the brim with tender, sweet, cinnamon-coated apples. This Cinnamon Apple Pie is great on its own and even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Apple and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese

When you don’t want a side of apple slices with your grilled cheese, put those apple slices in your grilled cheese. Then, marvel at how well they go with the rustic bread, melty cheddar, and sweet caramelized onions. You may never want anything beside this Apple and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese ever again, and I wouldn’t blame you for it.
