Hearth & Harvest
As one of the core fruits for American food identity, apples are recognized as an integral part of national experience, however the apple as we know it is not indigenous to North America. Along the journey to one of the most popular and consumed fruit, apples have been designed and redesigned to cater to popular tastes, stories and symbolism, and our values.
In this section, we have videos about apples in history, recipes, a history guide, and a prompt for collective story-sharing. Check it out!
Warm up your virtual hearth and join us as we take learn about the history of apple cider, explore the mythology of apples, share family apple stories, make apple dishes together, and study the science of this crisp, fall fruit.
