The apples are ripe every-where in Bavaria right now. Every time I pass a tree I want to stop and collect them all! Fortunately, we have access to some plentiful trees on post, and this past weekend, we stopped to collect some. They are small and powerfully tart, crisp and bright. I made an apple pie right away, and have tagged a large portion for a batch of apple butter. I'd like to make some more pies, too!
