Suite I: The Apple

If there is one food that I could never live without, it would be the apple. Sweet, tart, and perhaps the most versatile fruit there is.
I cannot remember when my love affair with the apple began, but it must have been a scarring event because I adore them. Perhaps it's its versatility- apples can be eaten and served in infinite ways. Sliced, baked, stewed, sauteed, flambeed...I'll have to get back to you as I'm sure there is more.
But apples are also connected to other ingredients that I love. I have an insatiable craving for cinnamon- with many things, but foremost apples. One can almost not be without the other, that's how much they enhance each other.
