Apple Season is Here

by Cindy Lindgren

Before pumpkin-flavored everything invaded the marketplace, apples were the gateway to Fall. For me, September is for visiting apple orchards, baking apple pies or just setting a bowl of them on the kitchen table for snacking. Here's a few items from our HandmadeMN members to get you in the mood for apples.

For starters, I love these plaid totes for carrying your apples home from the orchard or farmer's market. The smaller bins filled with apples keep the apples in sight for healthy snacking.

When you start baking your apples into tasty pies, you might need a new apron for inspiration.
