All About Apples!

One of the best consolations to summer being over is that we ease into apple season, which has a charm of its own among all the fruit seasons.

When I was about five years old, I went apple picking with my family, fell out of a tree, and broke my leg. My parents thought I was being melodramatic with the hysterical crying and whatnot. As my mother often repeats, they put me in the car's back seat, left the windows open, continued apple picking, had a picnic lunch, and then drove back to NYC. A pitstop at the hospital revealed that I had fractioned my tiny little tibia and needed a toe to hip plaster cast for three months. I don't know why my mom still tells this story. It doesn't exactly reflect well on my parents' part, but that's all water under the bridge.

Funny enough, I am still very fond of apples and haven't missed a chance to go apple picking since. Although I lean into the phrase "low hanging fruit," I think climbing the trees at apple orchards is pretty much against the rules. Perhaps a rule was implemented after too many small children toppled out of Macoun apple trees.

So after you overfill those baskets or bags with McIntosh, Red Delicious, Pippin, Fuji, Pink Lady, Greening, and Gala apples, you will probably want to do more than just eat them straight up. Here are some of my favorite ways to use my favorite fall fruit.
