Laura travels to see one of the best disappearing acts for Fall, the Gravenstein apple harvest. The first apples to ripen in late summer are quickly disappearing. It is delicious and most arguably the most hallowed apple for the country states grower, Steve Dutton. Getting his Northern Carolina boots dirty, friend and Chef Dale Ray shares some harvest time recipes with Laura underneath these beautiful trees. Watch our Laura@Home segment as she prepares a squash-serving bowl for Chef Ray's Garden Winter Squash Soup. Want that extra nutty flavor? Try roasting the bowl in the oven!

Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes
Taking a trip to Napa only gets better when Laura meets up with Chef Michael Chiarello to cook with fresh heirloom tomatoes at Connolly Ranch. Together they cook, they laugh and they learn. At the ranch, Laura meets Eileen Chiarello who explains the sustainable farming program for kids. Join Laura on Bringing It Home as she follows heirloom tomatoes from the field to the table with recipes such as Pappa al Pomodoro. Learn how to make "Pomegranate Caviar" with Laura@ Home. These pearls are fun to make and full of flavor. This recipe can also be used to prepare balsamic "caviar" as featured in Chef Chiarello's recipe.
