Have you gone apple picking recently? Or perhaps you’ve just noticed that

grocery stores and farmers’ markets are prominently displaying all kinds
of apples these days. Yes, it’s apple season again!

If you’re looking for new ways to make apples or just a few more good reasons to eat them, you can read up on it in this article I recently wrote for We the Eaters, a blog for food lovers.

If you’re in the DC area come on out to Joe’s Movement Emporium for an apple cooking demonstration on Thursday, October 29 at 7 pm. We’ll make a soup, a sugar-less snack and share a few recipes to take advantage of apple season!
