Living in Oregon, I remember going to the beautiful apple orchards and coming home ready to make apple butter and freeze pies. Now living in Texas, I am thankful that I am not being subject to the radiation from Japan that arrives daily in California, Oregon and Washington.

Let us hope that we all plant apple and other fruit trees. We need to support our local farmer's market's, especially those of us who live in the Central, Southern and Eastern areas of the United States as we receive less radiation. Organic does not just mean growing without pesticides and GMO altered plants. It also mean free of radiation and other toxic elements.

We are now at a point where we need to supply radiation free fruit and vegetables and, dairy products to our western coast states, Hawaii and Alaska. Supporting Local Harvest can be one step in that direction.

We love apples...all kinds. In Northern Arkansas apples are grown by the name of Arkansas Blacks.The are a dark red apple and very delicious. We try Homey Crisps from Michigan that are tartly sweet and crispy. Different kinds of apples taste different and can be utilized for different recipies. We can tart apples for pies, and freeze sweet apples for tarts and to simply enjoy eating with breakfast. I also cook tart apples with pork dishes which makes it taste wonderful. Apples are just good to eat and good for you. We also donate boxes of apple to our local Senior Center.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win a new apple cookbook! It will be another reason to enjoy an already wonderful season. The Fall harvest has always been my favorite time of year. The crisp air, leaves under feet, jeans and sweaters, and coming home to a warm spicy apple aroma filling the house. I can't wait to start cooking something appley!

My mother lived in the NE Washington region where the majority of apples were grown for decades in the U.S. Apples were always my afternoon snack when I came home from school. I often snuck an extra apple out of the bag when no one was looking because who can eat just one (a day)? As an adult, it has been fun to try new varieties. My next apple adventure will be to try heritage apples, and of course lots of great recipes if I am lucky and blessed enough to win this cookbook. Thank you for the fun of entering and reading other apple-lovers' comments. Joan

Living in Wisconsin we have some of the best choices in apples. I would love to collect a few different apples and test a few recipes on my family and neighbors. Your cookbook looks like a keeper. I will share with others.

I love your newsletters and share them with the young people that I am teaching the basics of how to cook.So many young adults know nothing so it is like having a clean slate and the joy they have when learning is worth it. I have no really good cookbooks devoted to apples so I would love to share yours with my young friends. Becky

I recently heard a woman at a local farmer's market say that it's impossible to grow organic apples in New York. Not true! New York organic apples are some of the best I've ever tasted.

There is nothing like an apple pancake made with cinnamon. It looks gorgeous and tastes out of this world! Make it big enough to share.

You can grow an apple tree, but there are so many wonderful varieties that you have to get them from your local farmer also. -Christina

God certainly gave us a perfect gift when he gave us the apple. We look forward to this wonderful season to purchase the "Crispin" from New York. There is nothing like biting into a crisp, juicy, and wonderfully aromatic apple. Johnny Appleseed would be so proud to know how many wonderful varieties have survived and lovingly eaten. Thank you for apples.

Apples are probably my favorite fruit to use in a blender. I'm very bad at making sure that they are perfectly ripened (I inevitably eat them before they're ripe, or else I wait too long and they're mushy), so I always end up enjoying them in apple/cinammon yogurt smoothies, or else I mix them up with lemonade and pour them into ice cube trays so that I can have a bit of fruit in the winter months pretty easily.

Apples are certainly among my favorite fruits. My favorite varities at present are Gala and Golden Delicious for eating raw and Jonathan for baking. Recently my square dance club had a fall dance with the theme "Octoberfest." We served bratwurst, German potato salad, souerkraut, rootbeer, cider and all kinds of homemade apple desserts. We, in the St. Louis area, have close access to apple orchards in Illinois so we have lots of tree ripened apple varieties to pick on our own or to buy from the grocery stores. Tree ripened are the best!

New to the area and have many apple trees on my property. Would love to have a variety of recipes for them!!!

We have two small boys and I try my best to make all homemade food for my family with fresh, local ingredients wherever possible. This is one of our favorite times of year because of the food available to us in the fall. We love everything apple! The boys started out with pureed apples as baby food and also love to eat warm applesauce as a "dessert". My husband and I prefer dishes like apple pandoughty or apple crisp but we would LOVE to have some new recipes to try, especially some new ideas on how to incorporate them into lunch and dinner meals!

When my children were growing up my husband worked out of town a lot. While they did home work at the kitchen table I would make apple pies, a lot of them. They still remember those pies. My husband works at home now. He prefers apple cake with caramel sauce poured over it. Sure would like a chance at the cookbook, let the grandchildren pick something they like. Thanks for the inspiration to find something new to use all the wonderful apples this time of year. Should I receive one Thank You in advance. Theresa

My wife is processing the apples off our one apple tree today, this book would help her decide what to do with them! Yesterday we planted the garlic we ordered from Forever Yong farms through this site, looking forward to harvesting them next year. I haven't searched around yet, but hopefully I can find some suppliers of trees here, as my goal is to add a small orchard to my acreage.

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" --- very much truth in that old saying - We eat mostly fresh (organic when possible) fruits and vegetables and are juicing them now too. Apples are good in all the juices and especially good when starting on the vegetable juices - just put some apples in with them for natural sweetness and flavor -- wonderful!

Apples, cinnamon, spice and all things nice. Memories of Grandmother and her apple pies, apple crisp, simple baked apples; oh how the smell delights. Remembering her cinnamon candies sitting in a jar in the kitchen window. She'd make us cinnamon candy apples from all those little red beads.

Early mornings as I sit with a fresh cup of coffee watching the sun rise and the dew glistening upon the wet leaves with all the bright reds, browns and yellows. The smell of the wet leaves brings me back to a childhood that is what Norman Rockwell would paint. Running and playing in those leaves as dad tried to rake them into a pile. Oh what fun we had. Pumpkins appearing all decked out with corn waiting for something new.

Halloween night we dress up like goblins and ghouls and walk the neighborhood scaring all the old folks into giving us candy. Running home with all our loot to find in the front yard a large tin barrel full of water and those beautiful red apples. But oh no you can't just reach in, you have to stick your face in the water and try to bite one as they bobbed around as if to laugh at you! You can't catch me!

As the cool fall nights turn slowly into to colder nights making you aware that soon Tom Turkey will be upon our table and all the family will sit around and Thank God for our many blessings. Again there on the tables those wonderful apple pies and homemade apple sauce. Apples, Apples thank goodness they didn't put one in Tom's gobbler!

Then as the days turn into a bone chilling cold; we watch the snow beginning to fall covering the ground and trees under a beautiful soft white blanket slowly turning my life into a winter wonderland. Oh my memories of the Christmas trees covered in brightly colored lights, shiny brite ornaments hanging on the tree. Pretty packages all wrapped up nice sitting under the tree waiting for Dec. 24 and the best day of all when that little fat man all dressed in red was being flown on to my roof by 8 tiny reindeer! My dream of St. Nicolas soon to be here!

Fall and Winter; the best times of the year for all the Holiday Cheer and the grand expectations of love and family to carry us throughout the New Year. Memories harkens back to a time lost when families were near, the scents and sights all bringing to one's heart the delights of a childhood treasured for life.

Fresh Apples, a touch of cinnamon, and baked... comfort food. Really brings back memories. Apples, and other fruits from the fall season combine nutrition, with the elements of comfort, creativity and passion for those who take the time to find reciepes which bring out the flavors of the fruit. Tastey too!
