Apple Picking Time

I like apples. Now that probably does not come as a shock to anyone. Apples are just one of those fruits that everybody seems to like. We eat them as a snack. Put them in cakes and sometimes donuts. We make them into applesauce. They are a great accompaniment to pork. The ways with apples just seem endless, kinda like chicken.

If you really like apples, now is your time. Fall is the perfect time to purchase apples. Most cities have an apple orchard within a short driving distance. Some are u-pick orchards and some are just go and buy what you want (my favorite). If you can’t make it to an orchard or farmers market, check out the varieties at your local grocery store.

Back in the dark ages, it seems that we only had two kinds of apples, golden delicious and red delicious. But, we have come a long way. It seems that every year I find a new apple to try. Some are sweeter, some more tart, but all are fun to try. I’ve found that different apples have their own distinctive flavor. Some apples are better suited for cooking and others are better for eating.

For more information on apples and how to use them, try these resources.
If you try any of these sites or recipes, please comment. We would love to hear from you.
