There are bushels and bushels of delicious, crisp apples at market, fresh from our amazing local orchards.  If you’ve only gotten your apples from the grocery store, you don’t know what you’re missing!  Follow the old adage and pick up an apple to eat every day next week.  Spring Valley, Bigg Riggs, and Papa’s Orchard will have them all winter.

What goes better with apples than homemade caramel! Careful with the heat—caramel at home takes a gentle touch, but the end product is definitely worth it!  Find the full recipe here.
