Fall is For Comfort Foods – Get 2 FREE Old Fashioned Apple Recipes from Barbara Swell
It’s a fact of human nature – we all have comfort foods! Comfort foods are those special recipes or meals that add a spark to your daily life and are just as important to our overall well being as any other nutrient.
A good comfort food can awaken depressed spirits, soothe and reassure us that difficult times and trying moments in our lives are short lived and will pass. Comfort foods can also act as quick ways for us to celebrate special occasions or show loved someone’s how much we care.
And in here in Western North Carolina nothing says comfort food quite like apples. As one of the South’s premier apple growing regions, these misty covered mountains grow some 14 apple varieties from Granny Smith to Gala to Goldrush.
And WNC cooks have also long ago developed some of best apple recipes made with fresh apples. And I bet that Barbara Swell knows most of them.
Pioneer cooking expert and historian, Barbara has written 11 books detailing old fashioned recipes and vintage cooking techniques.
Her historic cookbooks are a perennial favorite with our readers. So we have chosen two of her best down-home apple recipes to share with you from her books, “Old-Time Farmhouse Cooking” and “Secrets of the Great Old-Timey Cooks”.
