September 22, 2015 - Radio Kitchen - Apples
There used to be a sweet little tradition in these parts: if you wanted to get in good with your school teacher, your gave her an apple every day. Nice idea, but if the poor teacher comes to work every day and finds a plain old Red Delicious apple on here desk, she might get a little cranky. As Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Schola Cooking School has observed, the enterprising elementary school kid can do a lot better than that these days. Here are some locally produced apples that have caught Jerry's eye.
