And admittedly, I like the decorating that goes with it, too. Here are some of my favorite ideas: Pour water, white wine or maple syrup in small carafes and use apples as stoppers. With food-safe ink, write names on apples to use as place cards. Pair apples with cheese and write names of cheeses on apples with food-safe ink. Make a quick applesauce with chopped apples, brown sugar and lemon juice. Simmer until thick. Add candied ginger, too.
