Growing up, my grandparents had a huge pear tree and an apple tree in their yard. Every fall, we spent time picking the apples to dry them for the winter. This made sure we had apple pies, fried apple pies and more no matter what the weather. These days, apples are easy to find all year. However. the fall is still the best time for apples.
