NC Apple Industry

NC Apple Industry The old adage, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" is easy to follow if you live in North Carolina. We are the 7th largest apple producer in the country with 40 varieties of the famous fruit grown in our region. But there are far more than 40 ancient and heirloom varieties of southern apples and one of our guests has sought out and saved many of them. North Carolina's version of Johnny Appleseed, Lee Calhoun, joins us along with Chef Peter Reinhart and others to explore the benefits of North Carolina apples. Guests Peter Reinhart - Chef-on-Assignment, Johnson & Wales Lee Calhoun - Author, Old Southern Apples* and Orchard Owner Megan Lambert - Pastry Chef, Johnson & Wales *Old Southern Apples is currently out of print.
