Savory Apple Recipes

Here are some of our favorite ways to use apples, beyond just apple pie. Check out our Savory Apple Recipes below...

Savory Apple Recipe: Zucchini Apple Fritters Recipe

Savory Apple Recipe:
Spicy Zucchini Fritters with Apples & Jalapenos

- Shredded zucchini (1-3+ cups)
- Flour (1/2cup-1.5+ cups)
- 2-3 Jalapenos, chopped
- 1/2-1 cup+ green onions, chopped
- 1-2 apples skin removed, shredded
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup of Peanut butter (or other nut butter, or tahini)
- Fresh herbs (chives, oregano, thyme, sage, dill, your choice!)
- Curry powder (optional)
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese (optional)
- 3-6 garlic cloves, chopped
- Petals from fresh Marigolds (optional, gives it some flavor and great color!)
- Salt and Pepper to taste

We mix all these ingredients together, adding more flour as needed, toss with flour until thick and easy to spoon into small fritters on a hot cast iron pan in a tablespoon or two of olive oil. Wondering where's the liquid? Well, the zucchini and apples provide the moisture – so add more flour as needed until the mixture is thick and spoonable, a little thicker and chunkier than pancake batter. Fry on both sides until browned, you can do multiple batches with a lot of zucchini, and then put them in the oven on a cookie sheet or glass lasagna dish at 325˚ F to keep warm and crispy so you can make them all for a large crowd.

These fritters are delicious and easy to eat, and taste great with hot sauce!

Savory Apple Recipes: Zucchini Fritters with Marigold Petals


We like to add marigold petals (or calendula petals) to add color and depth of flavor in these fritters. Totally optional, but fun and colorful! It looks like cheese.

Apples aren't just for apple pie!

Like spicy & savory apple recipes?

You can add apples to all sorts of savory recipes, we like to add apple to hot sauce, spicy stir fries, salsas, stews, chile, and so much more. If you're not always in the mood for apple pie or don't make cider, then using apples in all of your recipes gives dishes a hint of sweetness and lots of body and flavor.
