Our First Applefest in the 'Hood (and a recipe!)

When this cheery red apple signboard went up a week or so ago, I knew we had to go! And go we did. The morning weather was just right for this fest...sunny with a slight chill in the air - long sleeve weather.

We selected Honeycrisp Apples and headed back to our City Nest. Not long afterwards, I mixed up the annual sinful fare; so many calories it can only be made but once a year. Dipping apples in this warm, creamy, gooey concoction of fallish deliciousity is worth every caloric overload point!

Caramel Sauce (recipe #69479 from Recipezaar)

3/4 c. butter

1 1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar

2 T. water

1/4 t. salt

3/4 c. evaporated milk

1 T. vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

1.Combine butter, brown sugar, water and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly.

2. Bring to a boil for 3 - 5 minutes depending upon thickness desired.

3. Remove from heat and stir in evaporated milk and vanilla.

Life is sweet. Literally.

That carmel sauce looks yummy! Is this one that you've made before that I've gone crazy over? The 'Fest looked fun as well! I can't believe that Jed and I never really made it there...

Yes, Anne...this is THE sauce. You should try to make it! Or come on over for some - even better!

We've got a field trip to the orchard on Monday and I am thinking this sauce recipe will be tried! :)
