Apple Picking (Again)


It's that time of year again...apple picking time!  We started this tradition last year with our son, and I looked forward to returning all year.  This year, we returned with a new baby in tow!  The apple harvest in Ontario wasn't as good this  year as in years' past, but there were still enough apples to satisfy our needs.

We like to go to Pine Farms Orchard in King City, Ontario, because they have dwarf trees that only grow to about 6 feet, meaning that many apples grow low enough for children to pick without assistance.  I wrote a full review last year, so if you're interested, click HERE to read it.

We were as happy this year as last.  My son enjoyed picking his own apples, playing on the small playground equipment, and munching a candy apple at the end of it all.

 Like last year, it was a nice way to pass a few hours on a fall day.  Last year, I made apple sauce.  The recipe is HERE.  I used some of the apple sauce to serve with a pork roast.  It's also great mixed with Dijon mustard and used as a sauce over pork chops. 

This year, I'm making apple crumble....check back soon for the recipe!
