For this unexpected apple risotto, also from the The Apple Lovers Cookbook, Traverso adapted a traditional Italian recipe.

Traverso's take includes tart apples, saffron, white wine, Parmesan cheese, and lemon zest for a sweet-and-savory dish that she says you can serve alone or accompanied by apple-flavored pork sausages.
