There is nothing better than spending a sunny day in a beautiful orchard going apple picking. It's an activity that leaves everybody with fuzzy fall feels.

That is, until you wake up a week later and realize that your entire fridge is stuffed full of apples. So you either end up making that one apple recipe you know every single day or tossing a whole bunch of them out.
