Honeycrisp apple recipes to enjoy all autumn-long. 

Fresh, cool breezes swirl around you. Fallen leaves crunch under your feet. Scents of warm cinnamon tickle your nose. Autumn seems to be made for apples. And one of our favorites is the Honeycrisp apple.

Honeycrisp is a cultivated variety developed at the University of Minnesota in the 1960s and released to the public in 1991. It was created to grow well in cooler northern climates, so it is an ideal food for these chilly fall months. Honeycrisp is the most buzz-worthy apple of all time!

Because this apple is both sweet and crispy, the name Honeycrisp is the perfect description. Its sweetness and tartness make it a great raw snack. But it also is great for baking and cooking too.

If you’re looking to add a new apple variety to your fall menu, try the Honeycrisp. Get inspired with these sweet and savory Honeycrisp apple recipes!
