Whether they are ripening on trees in my neighborhood, filling a favorite pie, or used for the scented candle brightening up my home, apples are unavoidable as September begins and they last throughout the season.

If you have apple trees of your own, it is likely that you have a lot of the fruit waiting to be eaten or transformed into desserts and snacks.  Or maybe you've been lucky enough to purchase some from a local grower who has done the work of growing and picking for you.  Regardless of where your fruit has come from, finding different ways to incorporate them into recipes your family will enjoy can be a delicious sort of fun.

Did you know that while there are many types of apples, they can be classified into just two groups - apples that are firm and apples that are tender?  These two groups can then be further divided into apples that are tart and sweet.  Some types of apples are better suited for pies, while others are best eaten raw or used for applesauce.  If you are experimenting with using the apples that you have in a recipe, you may want to do a little investigating to be sure that your apple type will work well for the type of food you are preparing.
