One Million Apples: Recipe Roundup
We went apple picking last weekend and came home with an overflowing bushel or a peck or a peck and a half—either way, it's one huge bag of apples. I love apple cakes, pies, and donuts, but I especially like pairing them with savory ingredients, like curry and mustard and sharp cheddar cheese.
My grandmother eats her apple pie with a slice of sharp cheddar. Is that a New England thing?
