Arugula is at its finest right now in the midwest and this simple salad recipe highlights its piquant flavor.
It’s not hard to make applesauce, if you are using perfect apples. The reason hers is so incredible is that she uses the worst apples … those that have fallen to the ground and been bruised and need more cleaning than those picked directly off the tree. She has always been a champion for the underdog. These apples require no sugar (she may add a little if she feels it might be too tart). I have made it with her enough times to make a reasonable replica of hers. I am not quite to her level … I am not as industrious as she is. But there is always next year.
