"Surely the apple is the noblest fruit." -- Henry David Thoreau
Welcome to Apple Harvest Week at Red Couch Recipes. At the Red Couch Home we are devouring apples; all week long I will be sharing our apple recipes. My tablescape highlights the reds and greens of apples.
The placesetting. Oops! I didnt realize you could see the styrofoam.
My version of a Better Homes and Gardens magazine centerpiece. I bought a mum and put it in a metal pail. I stuck apples on dowels and placed them in the mum pot and....voila!
What a simple and fun autumn centerpiece.
I wouldn't go anywhere without my Style Sisters napkin rings.
Apple trees are surely one of Autumn's greatest blessings. The sign, although cut off, says Count Your Many Blessings.
Today's treat is Caramel Apple Bites. These are perfect for kids who never want to eat the whole Caramel Apple.
I do make homemade caramel sometimes, but these are made from wrapped caramels. Just follow the directions on the package for making caramel apples. Cut apples into slices and spear with wooden skewer pieces. Spread the heated caramel with a spoon and sprinkle with nuts. Drizzle with chocolate. The skewers are anchored in styrofoam in the ramekins. Come grab a Caramel Apple Bite on your way out.
Thank you for strolling through the orchard with us at Red Couch Recipes. Don't forget to join us all week for Apple Harvest Week.
