Yummy Fall Goodies/Syksyherkkuja

Fall is in Northern Maine, for sure. The leaves are turning, the weather is cooler, and our rental house kitchen is producing all kinds of yummy Fall goodies.

So thankful to have a real kitchen again! The RV kitchen (without an oven) just didn't invite us to do any baking (and not much cooking, either). I will share an apple sauce recipe though, that would be as easy to do in the RV as in any kitchen.

This weekend we made four apple pies, two pumpkin pies, and a big pot of apple sauce. The apples came from our own trees at the camp, we think they might be macintosh apples, but not sure. Very tart!

Crockpot Honey Applesauce

15-20 Apples
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 cup Water
1 tsp Cinnamon

Peel, core and slice apples. Fill crockpot 3/4 full of apples, add honey, water and cinnamon. Cook about 7 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Mix well and serve warm.

PS. We have one pie left, and a small bowl of apple sauce. Time to pick more apples :)

Sunday Snapshot

Syksy on tullut pohjois-Maineen - ilmat viilenevät, ruska värittää metsät kauniiksi, ja keittiöstä tulee oikein syksyisiä tuoksuja.

Teimme neljä omenapiirakkaa, kaksi kurpitsapiirakkaa, sekä ison kulhollisen omenahilloa, jota söimme amerikkalaisittain välipalaksi lusikalla kulhosta. Yksi piirakka jäljellä, ja ihan vähän hilloa - aika hakea lisää omenia :)


  1. Yum! We're planning to go apple picking this weekend for our bushel of macs! (I make up several apple pies and freeze them unbaked. Nothing like an apple pie in JANUARY. LOL) We have 2 apple trees and the kids have been snacking off them, but many got blown off by Irene. :( And we made a pumpkin pie last week! Time for some warm soup too! It turned COLD fast!

  2. Oh my goodness! That all looks so delicious and yummy! That applesauce recipe is SUPER easy. I think I can do that. Will be trying it! Thanks. :)

  3. Sounds yummy!! I'm hoping we can go apple picking soon and in a couple of years maybe we will have apples from our trees.

  4. that's my kind of recipe! sounds easy AND good!

    so glad fall is finally here although i heard today that's it supposed to be in the 100's again

  5. Yumm-O! That looks so good, and fun too!

  6. Jessy, I tried to google macintosh & cortland images, and I still can't tell what ours are. Tart, I know that :-D All apple pies and apple sauce gone now, so we'll need to pick up more apples and make more pies and apple sauce. Good idea to freeze unbaked pies! And soup, yum.. Homemade pumpkin soup is one of my fall faves!

    Anna, I was shocked you could make applesauce that easily. I'll never again make it the traditional way :)

    Sharron, I hope you get to go too! We didn't have apple trees in NH, but loved going to farms to pick them. Great memory makers <3

    Mountain Mama, it won't get to 100's here in Maine - probably ever, lol. Definitely not in September. Today was a t-shirt day as the temps were in upper 60's, lol.

    Lori, so easy & healthy to have every day - we finished our batch today, so we'll have to make more tomorrow :)

  7. i know i didn't get a personal invite but your spread is very welcoming! ;) yum!

  8. Hey jdavis2, come on over ;-) Now that we are in a rental we actually have a guestroom :)

  9. Thank you for the applesauce recipe, my family loved it.

  10. Great, Nancy!! That reminds me I need to make it again :)
