Fall is here and that means apple season in the Lebanon Valley. Visit your local orchard to pick your own. Purchase apple cider and try it hot this season with mulling spices. Gray’s Apple Ridge Orchard has cider available. Stop by your local farm market and see what apples they have to offer. Don’t just make pie this year! Try a new recipe. Apples are great when cooked with chicken and pork. Many orchards have heritage apples. Winesaps, apples are ancestors cooked with, are available at Seyfert Orchards as well as many newer varieties. Looking for something sweet… Sycamore Spring Orchard has apple dumplings. Purchase some for your family or try them as a different fundraiser. Of course, the ultimate sweet apple treat is a caramel apple. Wertz Candies has them with or without nuts.
