The first day of fall was yesterday (Monday the 23rd)! With that in mind, it’s time for some recipes. All of these recipes can be found in Kauffman's 100 year anniversary book, Faith, Family, & Fruit, published in 2015. If you’re so inclined, it’s almost possible to prepare a meal that has apples in every dish!
