Cider-brined pork chops with sautéed apples
The only time-consuming part of this recipe is brining the pork, which you do a few hours ahead. The simple sauce is easy to prepare and turns a beautiful caramel color.
Roasted apple, bacon, and frisée salad
A happy marriage of sweet, sour, and salty. The warm dressing wilts the frisée slightly, so dress the salad immediately before you serve it.
Apple-crisp baked apples
We recommend using Pink Lady or Jazz (a popular new hybrid) apples, which tend to retain their color and shape better during baking.
