Food Trucks and Vendors Show Their Apple Specialties

Confession Time. My favorite autumn produce isn’t pumpkin – I prefer apple. So when asked to judge the Fall Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival’s Apple Dish Submissions, I naturally jumped at the opportunity.

PRO Apple / NO Pumpkin.

Beloved and delicious apples! With 2,500 varieties of apples grown in the United States, there are 100 apple types grown commercially. Bring it on!

Within the tail end of summer and the beginning of autumn, I was excited to see what the Food Truck behemoths of flavor and expertise had to offer.
