Ninety North American apples, described in words and identified in the author's beautiful and precise watercolors.
In this charming and informative book, Roger Yepsen explores the world of apples throughout history and in the present. Each featured apple is remarkably distinctive in taste, texture, aroma, and appearance. They range from the unusual, like the Knobbed Russet and Hubbardston Nonesuch, to apples everyone has tasted such as Red Delicious and Granny Smith.
Also included are recipes for making everything from apple leather to apple brandy, as well as pies, sauces, ciders, and wines; sources for ordering apples, trees, cider, wine, or supplies; and tips on creating and growing new varieties.
