Books: How do you like them apples?

Susan Lundy writes about our favourite fall treat — apples

Heritage Apples: A New Sensation by Susan Lundy

Award-winning journalist and freelance writer Susan Lundy takes a bite out of the world of heritage apples in her new book Heritage Apples A New Sensation.

Lundy goes beyond the grocery store to reveal the unexplored flavours of more than 40 different heritage varieties of apple.

Filled with little-known facts, tips and recipes, along with anecdotes from, and tales about, apple growers and fans, Lundy’s book blossoms with bright photographs of “the noblest of all fruit.”

From the Salt Spring Apple Festival and a visit with grower Harry Burton’s Apple Luscious Organic Orchard to Hoodoo Ranch in Spences Bridge, all the way to Heart Archers Farm in Cawston near the Alberta border, the author picks the cream of the crop to share their love affair and expertise with apples.

Published by Touchwood Editions in Victoria, the book is available at and is

available for iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on iTunes.
