When I say apples, you may think of the fall season. This mentality should change. Apples, depending on the variety, are now available almost year round – from September/October to somewhere between March and June.

Last week we were invited to the Apple Month launch event at the V Lounge @ Earls Yaletown. We were treated to a menu of apple-inspired food & beverage items. Most of them used granny smith (green) apples, but the various combinations were tasty. I especially enjoyed the Apple Collins Cocktail (super refreshing and you really can’t tell there’s liquor in it!), Duck Confit and Apple Chutney (I usually associate apple with chicken, but duck works just as well), and my utmost favourite – Apple Pie on a Stick (I’m totally stealing this idea for future potluck parties!).
