My favorite apple is the Cameo, with the Suncrisp close behind. I pick them both at the local orchard.

The 35 acres my Grandparent's owned in Western New York were stocked with abundant fruit trees. The assorted bushels of apples were heartily given to family and neighbors each season. Each apple pie baked and recipe shared remain loving reminders of times past with warm responsive hearts.

We have a dear friend who recently shipped us a selection of apples from her family's orchard. The flavor of those just picked apples was amazing. I told my friend it was like receiving a healthy box of chocolates. We had such fun choosing which one we want ed to try next. I would love to have this cookbook to learn of new and interesting recipes with apples.

Mmmmmmmm........APPLES! My favorite fruit. I just made and canned applesauce last night. I use this in my apple bread pudding. Also make apple pie-wiches with them. I have a wonderful recipe with cabbage, apples and pork. It's a slow-cooker recipe, and makes the house smell wonderful all day. Am always looking for more ways to use apples.....would love to take a gander at that cookbook!

My recollections of my Mother are very precious to me, as others I'm sure. But the most splendid comes around every year at Apple time. I would go the local orchard and pick up apples and we would prepare them, the whole family was in the kitchen. My Mom would sit and pare and peel for hours on end. To this day, when I pick up an apple to eat I think of my Mom In love. Susan Waite

We took our 2 boys ages 7 & 8 and our 14 year old daughter down the street to an apple orchard that belongs to a friend. We picked 4 bushels in less than an hour. They loved it!!! They thanked us for taking them and said it was so fun to able to pick them ourselves. We were able to open up a conversation about how great it is that we didn't have to spend so much energy to get our apples. We talked about all the apples that are shipped thousands of miles but ours are right down the street. Every time we eat one of those fresh apples we are reminded of a great family adventure!!!

As a food writer, I am always looking for creative new recipes, especially seasonal. We are at the height of apple season here in NJ and have wonderful orchards nearby to go picking our own, as well as wonderful farmers markets with a plethora of apples of all kinds ~ many new to me. And, I have been deliciously tasting them all. Thanks for the opportunity to win a new cookbook!

I love this time of year! One of my favorite Fall things to enjoy are apples-anyway you fix them, I love them!

My new husband just loves, loves, loves apples in any variety or form. I didn't realize this until we moved to PA. I think it is because there are many more things made with apples that are available in our grocery stores, like Apple Dumplings etc. I think the cookbook sounds awsome as I really enjoy reading about food as much as making things. I would love to be able to bring some different Apple dishes to his next family reunion in the spring and this way, if I had the cookbook I can practice this winter! Also beabble to have some good conversation about the folklore and also talk about farmers markets inhope of converting more people to support the local farms. Thank you for the oppourtunity to enter this contest. Good Luck to everyone! Dee

We just planted a small orchard with about 300 apple trees. Before we chose our trees, I had no idea there were more than 3000 apple varieties in the world. That's a lot more choices than the typical grocery store!

"orchard love" what a perfect concept for fall! i've had an apple from Blackman Farm (NY) with peanut butter every day this week but would love some ideas for warm, bubbly-apple goodness!

I love the late Harvest Goldens. My mother in law is from Yakima WA and grew up on an apple farm. She has the most wonderful recipe for applesauce-just sweet late harvest apples and cinnamin. Also an apple pizza pie that makes everyone salvate. I would love the cookbook to explore my love apples more....enjoy... I can smell them cooking right now...T.Allen

I love to eat apples fresh from the tree, with all the ripe juices running down my elbows, or out of a bag from the store if I have to eat them that way. My family enjoys apple pies and fritters but I don't bake as often as I once did, so we just enjoy then fresh from the trees. They are so sweet and delicious!

I can't get enough of apples when they're in season! Every year, I make applesauce with friends or family, so we can enjoy the sweet taste of apples all winter long.

Hello, I live in the deep south along the gulf, so apple trees are not the norm. Since I can not grow them here I must purchase them from grocery stores. Apples are very nutritious and a healthy snack, so I will take what I can get. Thanks, Philip

We love picking apples fresh off the tree during the rain. We can applesauce for the winter as well

Apples are beautiful. I've been picking absolutely perfect apples behind the school where I get acupuncture. They're my favorite! Small, green, tart, not too sweet, with a hint of dried apple flavor and no sickly sweet aftertaste.

Cheers to apples!

I've been exploring the world of heirloom apples, and recently discovered Pink Pearl... which has beautiful rosy coloring within the apple. It's a whole new world!

Wow, I could definitely use some more ideas to transform our apples (we might have been a little overly ambitious picking at the apple orchard this year!) This book looks great!

Apples are my favorite fall fruit, especially tart ones. Every kitchen should have one of those handy apple cutters which take out the core and make nice wedges.

I enjoy buying my apples locally from Loretelli Farms where they are so sweet and crisp. We also ascribe to the "apple a day" in our home, as well as yummy baked apples with cinnamon, homemade chunky applesause, and apple cake. I'm always in the market for more apple recipes!

I love baking and cooking - the aromas of things baking containing apples and the accompanying spices is a bouquet for the olfactory senses! This is the best season for baking/cooking!!

This year, I am getting to go to my hometown of Knoxville, TN for Thanksgiving for the first time in four years. I would love to surprise everyone with some freshly made apple treats, and this book would be the ticket to some fantastic recipes! :)

Fall; Crisp, cool nights; cool, sunny days; delicious fresh apples on the tree. God's reminder of His fruits for us all.

The '77 MO harvest of Apples was the family's real first intro to Apples on the Tree. A family picking tradition that has endured to this day but now with grandchildren. While the Apples may not be as huge as that first pickin' in '77, the joy on the faces of the yougins' when Apple Picking time is NOW, is a real Norman Rockwell moment.

Apple harvest time, kids young and old, fresh cider and Apple Pie, make the Fall a time for simple, loving memories.

I love having fresh crisp apples in the fall but I I tend to get stuck on the very excellent recipe I have for apple crisp. I make it every year. I really would love some new recipes for the delicious fall apples. This cook book looks like it would be a very welcome addition to my kitchen libraby.

My father grew 2 types of apple trees in our side yard as a child. Although now, 30 years later, 1 of the trees no longer produces edible fruit...it's still fun to "find the apples" - ie: pick the ones the birds haven't gotten to already! Apples remind me of "home" & my family...a place 3,000 miles away from where I currently live. Long live apple season!

At age 85, in reasonably good health, my favorite fast food is a clean, crisp apple. What is better?? I remember my mother's apple pie - I have never been able to compete with it. She had a knack that I lack!!

I love apples and cooking with apples! Some of my favorite dishes include apple cobbler, apple bread, or applesauce! Apples remind me of fall.

I live in apple country! What a treat to drive by the beautiful orchards red, yellow and green with various varieties of apples. Occasionally I will stop and ask a picker if I can have an apple from the tree. Most often I am allowed to take my pick. Driving by the smell of apples permeats the air and adds to Falls abundant goodness. Off to one of the many local fruit stands to pick just the right apples for that pie. What a treat indeed! It would be wonderful to have receipes to take advantage of this great apple country I live in.
