Because apples are available all year, we often forget how delicious they are freshly baked, all warm and puffy, straight from the oven. Jacques’ Good Lady Apples Bon Femme  recipe satisfies all apple cravings with maple sweetened fruit. In this show, Jacques goes on to add basil leaves to a Stew of Red Summer Fruit  to make a deliciously flavorful, fragrant dessert. He also prepares two more simple and tasty dishes: Braised Pears in a Caramel Sauce  and Flambéed Bananas. Apples return as the main ingredient for the final dish of Apple Fritters.
