We were recently up at my parent's farm in the Thumb of Michigan for the weekend and it was so exciting to see all of the apples getting ready to be picked soon (early September). There were a few ground fall apples ready (when they fall on the ground, they are still good usually and tend to be riper than the ones on the trees).

My 2 year old daughter and I had a blast going around and trying each kind of apple. She is fruit crazy like I am and we could not get enough of it.

The honeycrisp apples, Granny smith, yellow delicious, red delicious and a few other kinds of apples are looking great. The trees are fully loaded this year. Every year can be hit or miss depending on the weather and this year is a hit. I can't wait to chomp into some of the apples.

This Swiss Apple Chicken Casserole is a family favorite that I have been eating my whole life. My mom would make it and I remember requesting it often. It is simple but so good. There are not too many savory recipes that I make with fruit but this one is awesome. The melty Swiss cheese along with the rich flavor of the celery and butternut squash with the slight crunch of the apples is the perfect combination.

This casserole uses Michigan apples that I picked up at the grocery store. Any variety will work but Granny Smiths are great for tartness and yellow delicious apples are great for their tenderness and sweet flavor.
