Its' Apple Season!
Can you believe that we have apples and it is only the second day in August?!? It's true - our Country Store has a great supply of Honeycrisp Apples and more of your favorite varieties will follow shortly. Fuji apples had been my favorite apple for as long as I can remember, that is until a few years back when I was introduced to Honeycrisp apples. WOW! If you haven't tried this apple yet, head out to Eckert's to pick some up - you won't be disappointed. We are working on a new fall cookbook (which is turning out beautifully!), so I took the rough draft home last night to get inspired about apple season! I didn't make it past page 2!! There was one recipe I wanted to try and one my kids wanted....so we made both. I hope you and your family enjoy these as much as we did!
