This week on A Taste of the Past Linda talks all things apple with Erik Baard a writer and an advocate for Newton Pippin apples, long considered the Cadillac of apples. Baard explains how the Pippin--fairly gross when eaten off the tree--sugars after a month or two, making it perfect for today's exporters or yesterday's original US colonists. Lauren Soutiere, a pastry chef at the Northern Spy Food Co., calls in to talk apple pie, including how to choose the best pie-worthy apples. This episode was sponsored by Acme Smoked Fish: a culinary mainstay in NYC for over 55 years.
