Apples have played an integral role in American life for the past 400 years. They were brought here mostly as seed by the first Europeans. The colonists planted orchards everywhere they settled. Apples provided home-grown fruit nearly year-round: they were used fresh or cooked, baked, sauced, dried, or pressed. Every area had its own locally adapted favorites, especially in New England. Join apple expert John Bunker for a discussion of the horticultural, culinary and historical significance of apples. Learn about today’s revival of heirloom varieties and how to track down ancient local fruit trees.
