One of the many great things about fall is the availability of fresh apples.

My favorite apple picking spots are Silver Creek Orchard, Flippin Seaman Orchard, Dickie Brothers Orchard, and Morris Orchard.

I didn’t get to pick my own apples to make this apple bread recipe, but I did use one of my favorite apples, Granny Smith.
