The lovely sight of apples hanging from the trees is a fine reason to hit the orchards this week. We are a big fan of buying bags of "seconds"--apples with slight blemishes that are sold at a deep discount. Finding ourselves with 12 pounds of apples this weekend (at 99 cents a pound from Aamodt's), it was time to get crazy in the kitchen. Here are three of our favorite creations.
Applesauce and apple butter home-style.
