A to the P to the P-L-E.....well you get it. I always associate apples with fall, but during the winter, I start craving fruits. Perhaps its the cold weather because its surely not the lack of fruit which is plentiful year round in California. Perhaps it is my primative self, buried within who remembers long frozen winters. Whatever the reason, I need a daily dose of fruit in the winter, moreso than in the summer (although in the summer I eat enough fruit to feed a small country). Lately I've been buying strawberries, making smoothies, and even my own sorbet. Apple sorbet sounded good and easy - like frozen apple pie filling or applesauce. This actually tasted like frozen applesauce, which may be a good substitute if you're looking for something quick and easy.Apple Sorbet

1) Combine apples and lemon juice. Heat on stove in medium saucepan over medium heat with sugar for 10 minutes, until apples are soft.
