My thoughts:
Autumn is the perfect time to cook with apples. I came up with this apple waffle recipe to have for dinner tonight. It has good apple flavor and since they are unsweetened, they taste great with butter and syrup. I left the skin on the apples so they have a slight greenish hue where the skin is peeking out. If this bothers you, peel the apples before grating.
