We’re thinking instead of an apple a day, how about crumb cake everyday!

It’s a good place to start…An Apple Dessert for Fall

Whenever you think of autumn, the major delicious and healthful fall treat is undebatably the Yadkin Valley apples.


The Apple Crumble is an oh-so-good apple recipe that serves four to six eaters. Tart apples, brown sugar and cinnamon are a perfect combination for this easy and pleasing dessert. To get the best flavor and texture, use a baking apple variety with more acidity. Jonathan, Empire and Granny Smith are excellent choices because they are firm, tart and good for us. Lots of research has linked eating apples to a reduced risk of diabetes, hypertension and some cancers. No research has shown how beneficial ice cream is for us, but served on this dessert—heaven! Make a day of it…celebrate the apple season by packing up a lunch and grabbing the family to pick your own apples right from the tree. It doesn’t get any better than this.
