Apple season is so special! Grocery stores and farmers' markets get flooded with ripe, local apples and apple houses fill-up with bustling pickers. My grandmother lives in North Georgia and gets my Mom half a bushel of her favorite - Stayman Winesaps - each year.
Lucky me, I'm living in Georgia this year, and am getting in on the apples!
What am I going to do with half a bushel of apples? I believe this was my grandmother's question. Well, eat them of course. Just as they are...and in muffins, stewed down to applesauce, baked and fried with sugar and cinnamon, shredded with slaw, sliced with cheddar cheese - oh all the possibilities!
