A Is for Apple: More Than 200 Recipes for Eating, Munching and Cooking with America’s Favorite Fruit

Co-written with my wife, Dorothy, whose grandfather homesteaded an apple ranch in Idaho in the first decade of the 1900s. The book features more than 200 sweet and savory recipes for apples. Each chapter includes a “profile” of a particular apple variety. Sidebars throughout the book relate stories about apple varieties, apple lore, and apple cookery. The book turns menus upside down by beginning with sweet things and ending with savories.
