We are right in the middle of apple harvesting time here in Alabama. Apples are one of the most popular fruits eaten, and now is a good time to incorporate this seasonal fruit into your cooking.
At our previous home, we had a crab apple tree (which is the only apple native to North America), and I would always snatch one from the tree as I passed by on the riding lawn mower. Although they were a little sour, they were very crunchy and juicy. On occasion, I would gather them by the basketful and give them to my grandmother to freeze to make pies and jams.
