Fall is one of the best (if not THE best) season for getting creative in the kitchen. Last fall, we focused on cooking with pumpkin, but this year, we’re ready to bring some apples back into our recipe rotation.

Although it’s one of the most traditional of fall ingredients, here are four unique ways to cook with apples.

1. Kielbasa and Homemade Applesauce

From What Molly Made

Kielbasa? Applesauce? We know what you’re thinking. This combination is untraditional. But trust us, this recipe is a favorite among friends and family of the foodie blogger behind What Molly Made.
