Apple Crisp

There’s nothing like the smell of an apple crisp or crumble baking in the oven on a cool day. If you can, pick your own apples or find some local ones at the market. Here in British Columbia, we produce an average of 80,000 tonnes of apples each year, predominantly in the Okanagan, and there are so many delicious varieties to try.
