Delicious Apple Muffins

It’s time to embrace our other Fall Farmer’s Market Favorite, Apples!  Before turning to Thanksgiving pie testing, I wanted to try some Apple Muffins.  I came across a version of this recipe on Little Spice Jar (thanks ongoing LSJ!) last night and as eager as I was to try it immediately, it was worth waiting until today to pick up fresh ingredients at Union Square (the Farmer’s Market there is on Monday, Weds, Friday and Saturday).
