Book of the week: Astonishing Apples. With a leaning toward midwest apple specimens, this book is fascinating. It has a ton of recipes, yes, but for me, the most interesting bits were actually the apple lore--learning about how apples have been developed and how they've evolved, plus regional guides to apples and how to use them.
