CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - This week on Cleveland Cooks, we welcomed Brooke Gammie, of Quarry Hill Orchards, to the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging Kitchen.

The Gammie Family has been growing cherries, peaches, apples, pears and grapes in Berlin Heights for three generations. Now is peak apple season, and at Quarry Hill Orchards, they grow more than 50 varieties.

Brooke shared one of the family recipes they use their apples in. You can use whatever kind you like, but she prefers their Golden Supreme and Crimson Crisp apples.
