An Orchardist's Simple Apple Recipe
by Marcia Passos Duffy

Ezekiel ("Zeke") Goodband, the orchard manager at Scott Farm in Dummerston,
Vermont, grows 46 acres of
heirloom apples -- over 70 varieties of apples that
date back to the 17th & 18th centuries.  These are apple names you may have never
heard of, like Roxbury Russett (the oldest American apple variety), Ananas
Reinette, and Sheep's Nose.  The farm has become the largest heirloom orchard in
New England.

During harvest time, Zeke must taste a thousand apples to make sure they are just
right for picking.  "While I love them all, there are days when I can't imagine
eating just one," he says.  Still, when he does, his favorite recipe is one that is
incredibly simple, but one that is the best in bringing out the flavor of a
just-picked apple.

Zeke's Simple Apple Recipe

2 just-picked apples, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup

Melt butter in a skillet (do not brown).  Add apples until slightly soft.  Add maple
syrup.  Enjoy!
