Apple Cinnamon Rub

This rub is as fall as the popular coffee shops pumpkin spice latte. Unlike the pumpkin spice though, this is a go to rub for pork and poultry year round. If you’re feeling adventurous, try dehydrating your own apples instead of using the chips. It’s way more effort but a fun after apple picking event.

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Use a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle to grind the apple chips into powder-like consistency. Combine all ingredients in a shaker bottle and shake until the ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
