Starting mid-September, CookingShorts will begin our Apple Blog-A-Thon. The majorty of our posts will be apple related, so you can take advantage of the prime apple season. We courage you to head to the fields and orchards to do what comes naturally, pick apples!

U-pick farms are an affordable and fun family activity that reminds us where our food comes from. If you’ve never been before, be sure to check them out this fall. It’s a wonderful time to spend with the family, especially since many families get settled in with the normal day-to-day activities. Get outside, breathe the fresh air, and enjoy fresh apples!

Ingredients:Apple Cherry Crumble

  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 10 sweet cherries, seeded and quartered
  • zest and juice of a lemon
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • salt
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 stick (4-ounces) unsalted butter


Preheat the oven to 350. In a small prep bowl, toss the apple slices and cherries with the lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

In another small prep bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, oats, remaining cinnamon, and a pinch of salt with a fork until uniform. Place butter in a baking dish and microwave until it’s mostly melted. This brings your butter to “room temp” and greases your pan. Pour the butter into the crumble mixture and incorporate with a fork. You may have to use your fingers to ensure that they butter is well combined. Pour the apple and cherries in the dish. Top with the crumble. Bake until the apples are cooked through and the topping is golden, about 45 minute.
