One of my latest passions has become buying local. I like the idea of supporting local people and families with my purchases as opposed to some conglomerate mega-mart.

We set out on a mission to pick our favorite apple of the season: the Mutsu (sometimes called a Crispin). The Mutsu is sort of a hybrid cross between a Golden Delicious and a Japanese Indu. They are green in color and look like a Granny Smith but they are sweet. They make excellent pies among other things.
