I love apples! My mom made the most amazing things with them as I was growing up and I've been hooked ever since. We live it Florida, but my dad went to visit my sister in Georgia and I know I have cameos on the way Nothing like a crisp apple to really make it fall!

We love apples. Although the kids still don't quite like eating the skins, we encourage them to eat peeled slices on a regular basis.

I love apples and so does my dog, Caoba. We have an apple tree in our yard and she actually walks under the tree and picks her own, right from the tree. I get to pick the middle ones, and the birds get to have the ones on the top that I cannot reach. Living in the desert can be a challenge for growing items and I am so glad that I found a variety of apple that works well here.

I love apples! I love eating them straight from the tree, making applesauce, dumpling, or into pies. They are just about the best fruit!

Apples, apples, apples. What a delicious mouth-watering taste. Everything from strudel to apple pie - apple butter to apple juice. Healthy tastes abound. Take your picks for flavor and variety.

There are few fruits as versatile as apples! I love them in both savory and sweet dishes and love finding new ways to use them.

I just love apple time! My family and I go every year to pick. We recently moved from Ohio to South Carolina and had to find a new orchard to go to. We ended up in North Carolina! What beautiful orchards up in the mountain region. We have found our new weekend adventure for fall!! And new varieties of apples!

My family goes Apple picking and I would love an Apple cookbook to help with ideas for all the apples. I'm sure my family would appreciate something different.

Apples! I love, love, love 'em. Every year I go to our nearby organic orchard and pick about three bushels. One bushel goes into sauce that I put through the Victorio outside on the patio. With the bees humming around sneaking a little lick or two, it is a great place to spend a sunny Autumn afternoon. Apple season lasts for us through mid-January when we finally finish off the last local beauty.

I also fill three shipping boxes with apples right out there in the orchard for my Florida fiend, Kathy, and she sends me pictures of the pies she makes. She sends me boxes or of oranges and grapefruits picked from her front yard trees, Pretty good exchange don't you think?

If I win a cook book I will share the recipes with Kathy. We both will love it!

I love apples and this looks like an amazing cookbook. We are fortunate to live within a couple hour drive to Apple Hill and try to make it up there every year!

My grandkids always beg for their Great=-Grandma "Toon's" home-made applesauce. But for me, I love her home-made apple pie. What a perfect fruit!!

Just think of all the things that we associate with "Apple Pie" The best way to welcome someone home would be the warm smell of apple pie baking in an oven on a crisp fall day. Apple festivals, apple cider, apple butter...dunking for apples. The apple of my eye...As American as "Apple Pie" the truest of compliments.

The apple has to be the most universally known and yet least respected fruit. We think of them as common, the ubiquitous lunchsack fruit. We talk about them in such casual, offhand remarks: "an apple for the teacher" an apple a day keeps the doctor away", "you are the apple of my eye" and on and on.

Yet they are possibly the most versatile, intriguing, aromatic, and delicious fruit we know. Forget about stopping to smell the roses - stop and smell the apples!!

ah yes I live 30 minutes from the apple capitol and where the finest fruit grows so it's high time I get learning some great recipes as your book will provide and then I'd be stylin

I'm seventy four years old and I would love to begin a new cooking and baking relationship with apples, which would prove a lot to my wife, kids, and the old geezers at the VFW hall.

I would love to know more about the different apples and what would go best with the different type of apples and what to make with the different types. I have an apple tree and two of my children have apples trees. This will give us some ideas to how to use them. Thank you

Every year I love to go out locally and pick apples. Walking in the crisp fall air with the sun shining above, I pick different varieties off the trees. I come home with a bushel of tasty goodness. The only thing that could make this better is trying the recipes in this cookbook. :-)

Spartan's were always my favorite when I lived in Washington State. I looked forward to the first frost and knew it would be time to pick the shiny sweet and tart goodness of the crisp apples. As an Arizona resident we grow some apples but the crops are so different.

We have 3 apple trees and lots of apples and lots of worms! But heck, I just cut the good apple pieces off the core and use em to make my apple desserts. I have plenty for me and the birds get a feast as well.

My husband's co-worker has a good size orchard and the end of August I start pestering about when the apples will be ready. He always sends me a sampling of Honey Crisp, Yellow Delicious and Empire apples to try. Then I buy my bushel for fall eating, cooking and baking. Fresh apples are the best!!!
