An apple a day means fall is on its way!

Around here we have several apple orchards within an hour's drive and every year we make it an event to go to several.  You can pick your own or just grab a basket already to go.  And FRESH apple cider is always a MUST.  I love making apple butter every year and sharing with family and friends.  And apple pan pie, and applesauce, and apple fritters, and apple pancakes!  And of course, there is NOTHING better than eating an apple fresh from the tree ... so crisp and sweet and juicy!  Some of the orchards also offer up treats like caramel apples, apple donuts, apple pies and of course we always get their homemade kettle corn to eat with the apples on the trip home.  YUM!

Aren't apples beautiful!! I love photos of apples, and our McIntosh tree is usually ready to be picked in September. This year, because of a hard frost after the blossoms were out, we got zero apples. But there's always next year. :-0
