Famous Local Beauties

There are three pounds of Gravenstein apples* on my counter. What to do? They're just a little bit special. Gravensteins don't keep well, and they don't travel well either. What good are they then? Well, they taste absolutely lovely. Mostly sweet, a little bit tart with something almost floral hiding in there too. And they can more than hold their own when baked in a pie. When you see Gravensteins, you just buy them. Period.  It'll be another year before you see them again.

So now that I got 'em, what do I do with 'em? How to use them to their best advantage? Perhaps one of these gorgeous apple recipes I've had my eye on...

    1. Try this recipe. It is out of this world good.

    2. Kristin: O.k. now I have to make those Cheddar Apple Bars asap! I love that there are lots of oats in it too. Thanks for the suggestion!

      The recipe called for "extra-old" cheddar cheese... I'm thinking they must mean "extra-sharp" (and not the "thing" I forgot about in the back of my fridge)? :P


    Take a moment to say "Howdy!"... I'd love to hear from you!
