With apologies to my Southern friends who have cotton pickin’ minutes!
We have been going to the same farm to pick apples for 20 years. It is down by the ocean hidden in a residential neighborhood. I guess at one time it was mostly farm land.
This is a Mutzu, very similar to a Granny Smith. There are about 10 different varieties you can pick there.
This one weighs a whopping 1 lb and 7/8 oz!
Lily picked this one. She left it here by mistake and called to remind her Nana not to turn it into pie!
It doesn’t take long to fill the bag. Here’s my youngest gson selecting the perfect apple. They are low so even the littlest can pick!
But I did turn some into this…
Dipped in chocolate, slathered with caramel, and dusted with toasted walnuts.
It’s a big apple, so when we have company I make a few and slice them to serve with the other desserts.
Last year, after Tgiving these pans were marked way down at the WSonoma Outlet. (My friend Carol from There’s Always Thyme to Cook told me I was talking about CTS so much WS was going to be mad at me! )
She has a wonderful apple recipe posted there!
I made some, using a pumpkin, nut, recipe. Cream cheese icing in the middle. Some are dipped in chocolate, others dipped in glaze and sprinkled with sugar.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Very warm here on L.I., beach weather.
