Apples in Abundance Part 1
Today we launch an apple series. Here in New England, we are deep into the Apple season, and apples are falling off trees. I'm employing all kinds of recipes to use them all as fast as I obtain them. During the Civil War company cooks incorporated foraged fruits like huckleberries and apples to make pies. Acquiring cooking utensils while in the field often prove as challenging as finding notable ingredients. Some used turtle shells, calabashes, shirttails, and other surfaces to hold and mix ingredients.
