I know Cindy at Applestone Cottage has them growing in her yard. She told me they are good to cook with, but not good to eat out of hand. I hope she makes tons and tons of apple baked goods and freezes them to enjoy all winter!
Last Sunday was warm, summery for apple picking. Most of the people were dressed in shorts and sweating. Not that it is hard to pick the apples, they are low bush and it takes 10 minutes to fill your bag.
Yes, 32.00 a bag! So learn how to pack that bag!
I picked all Mutzu, as I like them for baking, and eating!
Big, fat juicy ones!
Peel one, and you have almost a lb of apples!
The kids picked all different kinds.
It helps to kick the little one out of the stroller and put the bag in so those plastic handles don't cut off the circulation to your fingers!
And then get the 3 year old to push it! :)
It is very close to the ocean, so you do get a cool breeze.
How do you like these prices?
You can also get your pumpkins and gourds there.
My youngest gson said he didn't want one with WARTS!
I should have bought this one to make into a witch!
The kids got one little pumpkin each. It is still warm, and the squirrels will eat them if they are put out on the steps.
After tasting their donuts, I decided I liked these much better. I have posted it before. They are called Dirt Bombs, a cross between a donut and a muffin. I have seen many versions of them in blogland.
The recipe I use is from Sol
I added apples, and believe me, they didn't cost $5.25 for 6! And they are not fried, but very good!
The recipe is here.
One last apple!
A one pounder dipped in chocolate for the kids to share.
And one for Nana and Grandpa too!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Thanks for visiting!
See you soon!
