We’re teaming up with food and garden bloggers and our friends at HGTV Gardens to host Summer Fest 2012, a season-long garden party. In coming weeks, we’ll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you’re harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market. Today we’re exploring apples.
If you live in the Northeast, the introduction of apple season means more than a wide-eyed experience in the produce section. Instead, it means a trip to the farm for some apple picking. Donning your favorite comfy outfit and making your way into the country, this trip should be one of the first things you do when the air becomes crisp and the leaves turn golden. Don’t be afraid to pick apples by the crateful this year — Food Network has plenty of ideas to keep you busy.
For breakfast, drizzle maple syrup over Ellie Krieger’s Whole Wheat Apple Pancakes, blend Fuji and Golden Delicious apples together for Alton Brown’s 10 Minute Apple Sauce and eat a warm, hearty Zucchini and Apple Bread fresh out of the oven.
With so many apples, try incorporating a few into lunch and dinner, too. Tyler Florence’s classic Roast Loin of Pork With Baked Apples embodies everything that’s good and hearty about the fall, while this recipe for Apple and Brie Quesadillas brings an unconventional edge to a Tex-Mex mainstay. As for sides, look to simple Baked Apples and an Israeli Couscous With Apples, Cranberries and Herbs.

Hot Tips From Food Network Kitchens’ Katherine Alford:
Next time you’re battering food for frying, make sure the flour or cornstarch thoroughly coats your ingredients before you dip them in batter or egg because batter tends to slide off bare spots. Dip food in the flour a second time, then tap or shake off any excess before battering so it doesn’t clump in the fryer.

Go big or go home. This week, contestants of The Great Food Truck Race took on the college town of Fayetteville and the students from the University of Arkansas. The challenge: Adjust their menus, prices and strategy to attract their demographic. The Food Truck teams learned a very important lesson this weekend: Good food doesn’t have to be pricey.
For the next couple of weeks, we’re following the Food Trucks city by city with our guide of the best eats, compiled by the On the Road app and website. Today we’re exploring the best that Arkansas has to offer. Come back next week for our picks in Nashville.
