Re-read & reviewed this article today as my family had opportunity to glean a friend's apple harvest. I washed, peeled & sliced some of the smaller, bruised & misshaped fruit & used this apple crisp recipe herein presented. I love the way it makes your house smell as it bakes. Apple crisp is one of our family's traditional favorite desserts & definitely a fabulous local food extravaganza! Thank you for this excellent apple article & please know that it was used in a local food use effort.
