The scarves have come out, riding boots are back, Halloween candy is beginning to line grocery store shelves, and one thing is for sure: fall is officially under way. For all of us at Food52, that means it's time to get excited about apple season (we have a whole collection on Provisions dedicated to it, after all).
This week, as part of our new partnership with Etsy, we scoured the site to bring you unique -- and mostly vintage -- items to fill your every apple need. Whether you plan on picking your own, baking a pie, or canning some delicious applesauce, check out these treasures to make the most of this year’s harvest. And then come daydream with us about flaky pie crust, hot apple cider, and caramel apples.
Here are our favorite Etsy products to help you pick, prep, and puree. For more of our finds, check out the Food52 page on Etsy.
