Delicious apple to make for Halloween
There are a few things that make October a pretty special month; it has two holidays and it’s Ambrosia apple harvest time. Many historians attribute the creation of Halloween to the Celtic tradition of putting out fruit and nuts for the gods at the change of seasons that happened around the end of October.
And, for a long time, it wasn’t candy that kids got as they went door to door, it was freshly picked apples. Did you know that up until a few decades ago, in parts of the Canadian prairies, kids didn’t say ‘trick or treat’ when heading out on Halloween? Instead, they yelled ‘Halloween Apples!’
Candy apples are a fall favorite for kids and adults alike, and for good reason: They’re sticky, sweet, and crunchy—the perfect trifecta to enjoy this Halloween.
Making caramel apples before Halloween is a long standing tradition in our family. There are many ways to make the caramel, an endless variety of goodies to add to the outside, and fun flavors to drizzle on top. It’s easy to make fancy looking caramel apples like these.
