save the apples
Twelve endangered foods have been "boarded" at the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste this year, including the charmingly named Hauer Pippen Apple, above. Two wheat varietals were on the list this year, as well as five apples. In reading the article, I am struck by the local histories that these foods represent: from Washington Island in Wisconsin (Lake Michigan Whitefish) to the Burford Pear in Virginia.
