There’s nothing like an abundance of apples. You pick those first few buckets of ripe fruit with glee, anticipating the delights you can make with the sweet fruit, but a few bushels later, what to do with them becomes a quandary. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to enjoy your apples until next season’s harvest.

The native fruits presented in this article should be found on every homestead because they do not require special care, they can provide abundant produce, and they are part of our legacy, one that shouldn’t be forgotten.
