For the mountain family, apples were a staple-eaten raw and used to make cider, vinegar, apple sauce, apple butter, and pies. Storing them was important, as evidenced by this substantial apple house. Summer apples were stored on the upper floor; hardier winter apples were put in ground-floor bins. Earth and thick stone walls provided insulation from cold and heat.
