|fall apples, by juli|
fall reminds me of picking apples at my uncle charlie's home in alabama. he has a small orchard on land near my grandfather's farm. i always loved the tart, crisp apples we picked there. i live in north carolina now where families enjoy taking a trip out to orchards in the mountains to pick heirloom apples. we have quite a few varieties here and we just completed a story about their different uses as well as some recipes that i thought all of you might enjoy as well. btw, if you want to look at some lovely apple books take a peek at "apples i have eaten" by jonathan gerken and "the apple lover's cookbook" by amy traverso.
