A Bushel and a Peck

It's officially September and that always means a trip to the orchard for us...Lynd Fruit Farm is a favorite desitination of ours. Where's your favorite apple-picking spot?
No matter which farm you visit, there's just something magical about pulling your own from the tree, taking them back to the car and eating a few along the way. Do it on a perfect blue-sky day when it's cool enough for a sweater and it's just heavenly.
Once home, we love to make homemade applesauce with lots of cinnamon and there's always a pie, crisp or dumpling for dessert that night. This week, we're rounding up YOUR best recipes - savory or sweet! - for enjoying fall's favorite fruit.
So, tell us...

We love a sweet & salty combination and this apple recipe fits the bill. It's an unexpected way to enjoy your fresh-picked apples and you'll find it in our cookbook, 101 Homestyle Favorites
