BOSTON — For food writer Amy Traverso, apples are, well, the apple of her eye. She says she was always fascinated by the storied fruit, but became obsessed after getting married in an apple orchard. For the past five years, Traverso has been crisscrossing the country, learning about varieties and how best to cook them. And she shares it all — along with 100 recipes — in her new cookbook, The Apple Lover's Cookbook. Recipes range from the traditional apple pie, to a stuffed apple pork loin, to the adventurous pickled apples (get the recipe below).

Amy Traverso recently sat down with Greater Boston's Emily Rooney to talk about her favorite dishes from the book. Watch the interview and take a look at some of the recipes she shared with WGBH:

Dutch Baby
Free-Form Apple-Pear-Cranberry Tart
Quick Bread-and-Butter Apple Pickles
