    I bought this book after buying Olwen Woodier’s other cookbook, Peaches and Other Juicy Fruits. Like the Peaches book, this features recipes all having to do with fruit, in this case, apples.

    There are ten chapters, seven of which feature recipes.

    Apple History – Some interesting facts about apples, not really needed, but I always enjoy reading through this kind of thing.

    Cooking with Apples – What to buy and how to store.

    Apple Breakfasts and Breads – 22 recipes for egg dishes, muffins, and other breads. Recipes include; Apple and Puff Omelette, Apple Cheddar Crepes, and Apple-Banana Bread.

    Apple Drinks and Snacks – 12 recipes for different drinks, some with alcohol, and assorted snacks and appetizers. Recipes include; Apple Eggnog, Apple Cheese Spread, and Hot Fruit.

    Apple Salads and Sides – 21 recipes for vegetable and fruit sides and salads. Recipes include; Stuffed Apples, Apple and Sweet Potato Puree, and Cornbread Apple Stuffing.

    Apples Make the Meal – 20 recipes for soups, beef, pork, chicken, and fish entrees. Recipes include; Zucchini and Apple Soup, Grilled Tuna with Apple Chutney, and Cider-Braised Chicken.

    Apple Pies and Cakes – 27 recipes, some of which are for doughs and crusts. Recipes are for the expected apple pies as well as for some more innovative dishes. Recipes include; Apple Cream Cheese Tart, Pumpkin – Apple Pie, and Applesauce Gingerbread.

    Apple Desserts – 30 recipes for all desserts that are not pies or cakes. Recipes include; Apple Molasses Cookies, Maple Apple Crisp, and Apple – Cinnamon Souffle.

    Preserving the Apple Harvest – Canning and freezing apples tips, as wells as 6 recipes for jams, jellies, and chutneys.

    Meet the Apples – Lists and describes all of the different varieties of apples, as well as a helpful chart listing the seasons, and how the certain varieties are at freezing, eating, and used in different dishes. I believe this chapter would of done better at the begining of the book.

    Overall, this is a very good, fun cookbook. I’d definatly buy it if you’re interested in cooking with fruit, love apples, or just want another cookbook. The only drawback of this book is the lack of having any color photos.

    I love to add apples to recipes when cooking and this book has recipes that I wouldn’t have thought to add apples to. While it has some typical apple recipes in it, be expected to find some unique dishes as well. The cookbook is easy to follow and has recommendations for which apples to use in each recipe.

    This cookbook is a treasure ! I’ve made nearly all the recipes included.

    The apple blackberry jam is a crowd pleaser and one I’ve added to my ” make every season list “. Try it, you’ll never make plain blackberry jam again. I’ve purchased at least 10 of these books for gifts also. All Olwen Woodier cookbooks are easy to follow and classics. 5 stars are not enough.

    My Mom bought this book on a Vermont vacation in 1984 and it has always been one of her favorites. I grew up eating delicious apple recipes from this book and have always wanted a copy of my own. I ordered two of these paperback reprints…one for me and one for Mom as her old hardcover is falling apart. I highly recommend the Barbara Mullin’s Apple Cobbler, Apple Spice Pudding, Apple Banana Bread, and the Onion Apple Stuffing recipes. A perfect cookbook for this time of year!
