Serve Up Family Time With Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Between school, work and sports, it can be difficult to find time together as a family around the table. Baking a caramel apple cheesecake is one way to bring your family to you for some much-needed face time. With harvest time for apples running alongside with soybean harvest, farmers use meal time in their combines to spend time with their families.

Did you know the animal agriculture industry consumes 98 percent of soybeans grown in the United States? Soybeans are part of a healthy, balanced diet for many animals. Pigs, chickens, turkeys and cows eat soybeans for protein to keep them happy and healthy. Healthy animals create healthy foods! One example is the dairy cows that gave milk to supply the cream cheese for this recipe.

If you don’t have time to bake, we suggest heading to Country Apple Orchard to pick up a fresh baked sweet treat. Bring your kids along and make some memories by picking apples or pumpkins and enjoying other activities. Read more about how the Kroger family business connects with the community.
