As corporations go, Apple and the late and unlamented Enron would appear to be about as polar opposite as two companies can get. Apple manufactures innovative, useful, world-class electronics. Enron produced obtuse numbers in nonsensical accounts that it playfully named after flesh-eating dinosaurs. Apple's products have increased productivity and satisfaction for their users. Enron generated millions of dollars for its top executives at the expense of everyone else, from employees to shareholders to electricity consumers.

charlestown@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A line of contestants appeared on each side of 59-year-old Lorraine Davis during the apple-peeling contest at the 23rd annual Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival Sunday afternoon. But there was no way they could out-peel this country girl. The contestants were given 15 minutes to cut the longest apple peel. Using her favorite vegetable peeler, Davis cut a string of apple peel 22 feet, 2 1/2 inches long. Davis, who has won the contest about five times over the years, said she developed her peeling expertise while growing up on her family's dairy farm in the Nipetown area in northern Berkeley County.

An apple stack cake is as individual as the person who makes it. Apple stack cake is a traditional Southern Appalachian food whose purpose has changed over the years. "The story goes that the cakes were served as wedding cakes," said Norma Idom, a volunteer re-enactor at the Mountain Farm Museum at the Oconaluftee Visitor Center in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. "There have been several books published (about Appalachia history) that tell how each guest would bring a cake layer and the hostess would stack the cakes up using dried apples as the filling.

Back in the late 1950s and early '60s, the school ground in Dargan was the place to be if you wanted to play a little baseball. All the kids in the community would enjoy their summer vacations from school by playing the most popular sport. Nothing quite like a good baseball game or two and a slice of Grandma's homemade apple pie later. As we prepared for a big game, I would often toss a bat to another player and while we both grasped the bat we would place one hand above each other's until the last hand rested on the top of the bat. That person would then have first choice on choosing his team.

Ed Poling remembers little waffle-like cookies baking on the stove during Christmas time at his home in Windber, Pa. Poling, now senior pastor at Hagerstown Church of the Brethren, remembers those cookies, known as Pizzelles, as having a distinct taste due to anise that was added to them. Poling figures the treats probably have an Italian origin, which makes sense given the diverse background of Windber, a community outside of Johnstown, Pa. Windber was known for its coal mines and steel mills, and people from throughout Europe immigrated to the community for jobs, Poling said.

Alisha Hanlin owns and operates Pressed Flour, a food-related business based in Shepherdstown, W.Va. She produces custom cakes, cupcakes, pies and pastry platters, among other things. This recipe for mulled cider is hers. Hanlin said cider is perfect for the holidays because of the harvesting season of the apple. "I believe the original conception of cider as a fall and winter beverage goes all the way back to wassailing in old England," she said. "And wassail was traditionally a hard drink.
