APPLE DAPPLE CAKE

APPLE DAPPLE CAKE

Submitted by: Teri Miller

I am originally from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, the "other Apple Capital" of the world. My grandparents meet while picking apples and were married 71 years. My husband Rich is a 4th generation farmer, and we grow mostly pears and cherries. Since we also have an on-farm market we also grow apples and other tree fruits. We are located about 5 miles east of Leavenworth on Highway 97 and benefit greatly by our location. I am a board member of Cascade Farmland Association, whose purpose is to promote ag tourism in North Central Washington. In the process of doing this we work to educate the consumer about our products, and our rural lifestyle. We love to share our story with the public and introduce them to new varieties and food preparation techniques. If you live in our area you can read my weekly recipe column in the newspaper where you can get great seasonal recipes and cooking tips. Thank you – Teri Miller
