For the past few growing seasons, I've been thrilled to see more and more varieties of summer apples popping up at my farmers' market. Though many people, at least in the northeast, associate apples with autumn, plenty of heirloom varieties are ready to eat in mid-summer. That makes me happy for lots of reasons, not least of all because now I get to make caramel apples for my Labor Day barbecue and feel totally legit about it. This is a simple and delicious recipe for caramel apples adapted from Martha Stewart. Partly because it's super-cute and partly because I had a hells of a time finding popsicle sticks here in London, I used sturdy twigs to spear the apples—it worked great. Smallish apples are a nice choice to serve at a party where there may be other desserts to sample. Pretty much any variety will work fine, but I especially like the combination of a tart apple with the sticky-sweet caramel and salty peanuts.

Add spices to the taste of your fsvorite BBQ sauce. The added spices aren't absolutely necassary, but they definately add a fresh kick. Happy Labor Day.
