Apple Season: Favorite Local Orchards, Cider Donuts + More

Vermont Cider Donuts recipe by Amy Traverso from The Apple Lover's Cookbook

Where is your favorite local apple orchard? Who makes the best apple cider donuts? Should a tart apple like the Sierra Beauty star in your pie—or should you go for a sweet variety, like Golden Delicious, Jazz or Jonagold? If you’ve got a question about apples, or you just want to shout-out your favorite pick-your-own farm, or apple-studded donuts, join the conversation. Amy Traverso, author of The Apple Lover’s Cookbook is our guest for the whole hour. We want to know how you cook with apples. Have a tip for making homemade apple butter or better still—a mulled cider? Share it with us! Autumn is here, and there are plenty of delicious ways to get your “apple a day.” Amy, our guide to cooking and eating apples, shares apple recipes (including apple cider donuts), apple pie tips, and a savory apple supper.
