n this episode I discuss antique and heritage apples. I recently took a day trip to the high country in NC to meet a couple who specialize in saving and promoting over 350 varieties of old apple trees that have been thriving in these Southern Appalachian mountains for centuries. These are apples with funny names like Lampoc, Limbertwig, Gano etc. If not for the Joyners, these apple would be gone forever, this is not just food we're talking about...it's about preserving the heritage our of food sources.
