And then it was Sunday. Such a beautiful contrast to the wet, gray Saturday.
This was the first real outing we have had since back in August at the beach. We try to pick one good weekend in the fall to get to the orchard, and Sunday was perfect--sunny, warm, blue skies.
And the best apples of all are Honey Crisp, a fairly new variety. If you can get any--and supplies go fast--these are by far one of the best apples I have ever eaten, a cross between a Gala and something more tart. Firm and juicy, but the skins are not tough. That and all the other goodies and you can spend a bundle at these places. Fresh apple cider and donuts made on the spot. I am not and have not been for many years a donut person, but the pumpkin spice and apple spice donuts are almost irresistable and as decadent as the chocolate covered cashew clusters they sell as well. Everything hand made. Mmm.
