Apples for Autumn

It would not be Autumn without apples. A favorite fruit of the Season apples always seem to let us enjoy their delicious taste in a variety of special holiday recipes. Red, yellow, green, tart, sweet, and sometimes even sour, are all of the taste we remember when we think of apples. Walking thru an apple orchard and enjoying the scent of the fruit hanging on the trees is a favorite Fall memory of mine. Harvest time for cooler climates for apples is September and October.
