Lots, and lots, of Apples!
Some of my favorite apples are Granny Smith, Pink Lady, and Mountaineer York. I’m always looking at different ways to prepare them, so I don’t get burnt out, on the same thing. Recently, I’ve been making apple nachos. To make this, wash, and cut up your apple. Heat up some caramel, and chocolate. You can even use peanut butter, if you prefer. Drizzle it over top, and sprinkle with your favorite toppings. So good, and still healthy-ish. Apples have so many uses. Think about it; Juices, cider, pies, salads, cakes, and so much more. A staple in my house is apple pie, and vanilla ice cream, for dessert. You can’t go wrong, when it comes to pie. Click this link, to our Pinterest page, to find recipes for apples.
This time of year, most customers are surprised to learn, that we still have apples. We are done harvesting our apples by mid-November, usually. We put them into cold storage once picked, to preserve them, without jeopardizing the flavor. Our farm grows over 20 varieties of apples. We also rent a neighboring farm, from which we harvest roughly 15 varieties as well. This makes for lots, and lots, of apples. Our apple season seems to extend each year, which is great for our customers. Did you know that apple trees make up over half of the world’s tree fruit production? Apples are rich in fiber, and antioxidants. Apples from the grocery store are always a gamble, as you really don’t know where they are coming from, or how long they’ve been sitting on the shelf. Our apples in the farm market are sorted daily, to ensure the very best, quality, for our guests. Make sure you pick up some apples next time you visit!
