A Variety of Apples

Well we are certainly having a wet week at the orchard! We have lots of apples harvesting this week and we were out in the rain last night picking until dusk.

One very common apple we're harvesting this weekend is the Red Delicious. Many people choose it because of it't looks, however, it is not always the most 'delicious' apple' to eat! Straight from our orchard, you certainly can taste a difference between the store bought Red Delicious.

Soon we'll have winter upon us and we'll be discussing all of next years growing crops. We'll be putting in more pear trees, but we'd like to put in more apple trees as well.

We want to know - what is your favorite apple variety!!??

 
 

Apple Bread

Last night I decided to start my attempts at being creative with our apples!


I opted to take a stab at an apple bread recipe I have rather than try a second attempt at my canned apple pie filling, thinking it would take less time! At almost midnight I completed something that I started at 7pm! I might as well have canned!! Not to mention the cost of half of those fancy, schmancy ingredients you need when making bread! I'd have to charge $20 a loaf to make a profit from it! No worries on the 4 hours slaved in the kitchen!!


In any event, I must say, it looks scrumptious! I'll find today when I let my co-wokers taste-test if it was a success or not!
I'd love to post a picture in the blog, but for some reason, I am not able to....hmpf!
 
 

Ingredient: Apple!

It is this time of year that my husband & I find ourseleves trying to figure out ways to be creative with our apple crop. Indeed we do sell the apples, but there are always plenty that drop before we get them or don't look 'pretty' and so rather than see those go to waste, we like to cook with them.

There is always your apple sauce, apple butter and apple cider, but what other kinds of apple items would you be inclined to try and buy out at your local farmers market? We want to know!

Is it Canned Apple Pie Filling? Canned Cinnamon Apple Sundae Topping? Apple Crisp? Apple Bread?
