My Newfoundland dog, Eve, is an apple connoisseur. She loves apples, has her own apple tree and picks her own apples right off the branches.

I love making applesauce from my Macintosh apples. They are tart and a firmer apple that stands up to pie baking and a delicious chunky applesauce.

It is also a very healthy treat for dogs. If you make the recipe below exclusively for your dog, just reduce the amount of sugar by one half.

Some facts of the benefits of apples for canines: They are full of vitamins, vitamin A, C and antioxidants.

They are a low calorie treat that’s full of fiber for healthy digestion and they are great for dog’s teeth.

Here is Eve’s favorite applesauce recipe.

It’s apple season in Pennsylvania, so if you have a tree , make some applesauce or go to your favorite farm stand and buy a bunch! It’s always best to eat what is in season.

Happy Fall! 🍂🍁🍎
