  1. Thank you for the giveaway! My birthday is early in November, so my mother’s raw apple spice cake recipe is one of my favorite ways to enjoy apples. It’s served with ice cream and a warm butter sauce…yummmm! :-)

  2. I love fresh apples dipped in peanut butter!

  3. I love apple crisp. My family does too. I have a recipe I have used for years and my mom used it too. It’s good warm with s little ice cream or just a little cream or milk…or plain. Now i have to go make some!!

  4. I am now a fan on Facebook!!

  5. My favorite way to have apples is in a homemade two crust pie. One slice of that, warm, with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and I’m on my way to heaven!

  6. CARAMEL APPLES! And I have one with peanuts on it waiting for me downstairs! YUM.

  7. I also follow the RSS feed via Google Reader.

  8. Hi Allison! What a fun idea! So, my favorite way to eat apples is simply sliced apples dipped in peanut butter. Breakfast of champions! But I’m also a sucker for sliced apples coupled with slices of sharp cheddar for the best snack ever!


  9. I love Chicken Sald with apple.

  10. Recently tried apple cake. came out dry. I prefer an apple pie with a cheddar crust! The best!

  11. If they’re not straight off a tree in an orchard with cider and kettle corn, I love adding bits of honeycrisps to cashew salads with poppyseed dressing! Oh yum!

  12. I shared this link on my Facebook page!

  13. My most favorite is apple strudel, or any apple dish with lots of pastry, hot filling, sweetness …….now I’ve gone and activated that craving! :)

  14. I am following you on twitter @rusthawk. Thanks!

  15. I liked your facebook page. Apple snickerdoodles! Yes!

  16. I posted about this giveaway on my facebook page (Rust Hawk).

  17. I subscribed to your RSS feed.

  18. Two words: Apple Pie

  19. Apple desserts are a big favorite of mine. I love making apple crisps and playing with recipes for the topping. Just dipping a fresh apple slices into peanut butter is great too!

  20. My preferred way of enjoying apples is bobbing for them. Go way back with you on Twitter…

  21. Every year we have so many left over apples from our trees – I just chop them up and set them in a pot with a little water, a lot of cinnamon, and nutmeg. After it has simmered down for quite a while – just use a potato masher to make chunky applesauce. You can add sugar as well, but I find the apples are sweet enough by themselves. If you have left over pears you can add them as well. I usually don’t peal them because it is so much work, and your sauce will be deep pink if you leave the skins on!

  22. So glad for the chance to win this. :) And I like the idea of building a whole yummy theme around it.

  23. I like mine sliced up and on a grilled cheddar cheese whole wheat sandwich with Lightlife Turkey!

We would make a whole day of the event – pick the apples, rent the press, heat the cider, and then sell it on the side of the road like a lemonade stand! Such good memories make the cider always taste so sweet and delicious!
