It's Apple Season!

Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter. ~Carol Bishop Hipps

Today was one of those wonderful autumn days where the breeze was cool, but not cold, the sun was shining on the brightly colored trees and the air was crisp and fresh.  I walked out to my raised bed and snipped herbs to use in vinegar, and enjoyed the day.  I love everything about fall days, including the harvest of apples, pumpkins and squash.  I wrote an article for OFL today with vintage apple recipes from several of my favorite old cookbooks.  You'll find recipes for:

Apple Corn Cakes
Steamed Apple Pudding
Apple Sponge
English Apple Pie

I provided notes after each recipe explaining some of the old measurements, such as "butter the size of an egg".  I love the old measurements:)
