I get a box of fruit & veggies delivered to my house every two weeks. Let me tell you something. IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. However, I rarely finish all of the apples and pears and bananas. I stuff them into the freezer when I don't eat them, but... my freezer is overflowing with frozen apples and bananas, and I think a few pears. What can I do with them? [more inside]

I am so lucky to live in the heart of NC apple country. In fact, I can see an orchard out my back window. Best of all, I have a love for the taste of this versatile fruit. But I have little knowledge of ways to use them. Please share your ideas for ways to enjoy them fully. [more inside]

Plain fruit and a handful of nuts or a slice of cheese grow old pretty quickly. What are some ways I can dress up or vary my fruit snack? [more inside]

We have a persimmon in the fridge and I tried a piece of it tonight. It's very astringent and made my mouth dry. We Googled recipes for persimmon cookies
and persimmon fudge
, but are unsure of how well they'd turn out. Anyone know of something tasty we could make with this thing so it won't go to waste?

Today's theme ingredient is...APPLES! What apple-based dessert recipe would you recommend for a picnic? 1) I don't care much for the very tart varieties of apple (e.g., Granny Smith), so I prefer a recipe that uses, or at least works with, the less tart varieties. 2) There will be several hours between baking and serving, so it should be servable at room temperature. 3) I'm reasonably skilled in the kitchen; you need not shy away from more difficult recipes.

I am a very visual eater and extraordinarily stubborn. After avoiding pretty much all fruit and veg my entire life I am trying to take the plunge and expand my dietary horizons (without expanding my waistband). How can I get over the mental block of eating green and orange stuff? Can anyone recommend an easy way to get on the fruit and veg wagon or recipes that conceal the deadly veg from mine eyes?
