It's officially fall! And with that comes pumpkin everything, sweaters, and apple picking! This past weekend I went apple picking with a couple of friends in New Paltz, NY and came home with seven pounds of apples! Store bought apple butters contain high fructose corn syrup and added preservatives - this homemade version is sweetened with a touch of maple syrup allowing the natural sweetness of the freshly picked apples shine through.
My husband loves French toast. So much - that he usually orders two breakfast entrees at brunch. Whatever is on the menu that he's interested in and a French toast for dessert. So when I had some leftover ricotta, I just knew I had to try my hand at stuffing one at home.
