The first ever Mason Apple Fest was a big success! It was very nice to see so many people out supporting the Mason schools and having a great time.

The 4-H club helped me with a booth where people could try free apple snacks. We made apple smiles, where we covered an apple wedge with peanut butter and used almond slivers to make the teeth. We also made a couple of dips for our apples- the kids all love plain yogurt mixed with kool-aid drink mix, and one that the 4-H kids came up with was the yogurt mixed with the peanut butter, and that was good, too.

Anyway, I thought I’d share a few apple recipes in case you got some apples at the Festival or will be getting some from the Sonlight Apple Orchard. On a side note, did you know if you put apples in the bottom drawer of your fridge they’ll stay good for months on end?

Happy apple season!
