I have shared in the past how my extended family owns an apple barn.  No joke, this lovely Apple Barn was only about three miles from my home.  So of course, apples are near and dear to my heart.  Here is my Apple Chips post, it also includes several of my apple recipes.  The apple cider in my cocktail I had stored in my freezer for a special day.  When I was in Michigan last December I stocked up on several apple treats.
