I’ve lived in Michigan my entire life. And I LOVE MICHIGAN!! I love the change in seasons and I find myself falling in love with this autumn of 2014. The colors have been as stunning as I can remember. Only in recent days have we begun to see leaves shredding down at an accelerated rate. I’m just giving a shout out to Michigan Apples as I have just taken my third apple crisp (in a week’s time), out of my oven. We grow (Michiganders being the “we”) superb apples here! I’ve been making double the crumble topping and then baking off a fresh crock o’ apple crisp every couple of days. My mom always said, “pie should be eaten in the first two days”. Words to live by and the same applies to apple crisp in case this needs to be clarified. So there’s my ode to Michigan Apples.
