Pretty much anyone who knows me knows I love apples. In fact, five years ago, not long after I’d started blogging, I published an essay called Musings on Apple Madness, chronicling my lifelong passion for this fruit. In the early days of my blog, when I was too timid to put my name or photo on this space, I used the picture above as my profile photo.
Yes, I’m that person who eats four to six or so apples a day. And why not? They’re a perfect package of food: tart, sweet, crunchy, full of flavour and good for you, too. After all, if an apple a day keeps the doctor away, why not have a few more for extra insurance?
When it came time to do this apple roundup, I was a little surprised at how few apple recipes there are on the blog. Then again, maybe that’s not so surprising because my favourite way to enjoy apples is out of hand. But then there’s apple pie and apple cake and apple … well, you’ll see below.
