FARMINGTON — A cookbook brimming with delectable apple recipes collected from members of local homemaker extension groups is available at Morrison Hill Apple Orchard, 272 Morrison Hill Rd.

Hazel Flagg, president of the Wilton  Day Homemakers Extension said “An Apple A Day” contains more than 300 apple recipes. The majority of the recipes were submitted by members of the Wilton group, she said. Members of other Franklin County Homemakers Extension groups also submitted recipes.
