Motifs We Love: An Apple A Day + Recipes

by Caitlin Kelch


This is the time of year when I relish the gazillion varieties of apples available from our local orchard, Rellim. We’ve noticed the table isn’t the only place apples are showing up these days. The apple motif is popping up everywhere, and we thought it would be fun to round up some of our favorite apple themed products alongside two delicious apple pie recipes. One recipe is an amazing gluten-free hand pie that you’ll love, and the other is a rustic take on the seasonal pie from fellow West Virginian Katie Lee, co-host of Food Network’s show, The Kitchen.
