It’s apple season in Bayfield, WI. This past weekend, we took in the best of what fall has to offer by wandering a hillside orchard: autumn leaves, crisp air, warm sunshine, and apple goodness.
The kids were thrilled to climb up the apple ladders to pick the fruit as well as explore how the different apple varieties taste. The Cortland apples were our favorite because of their sweetness.
On the drive home, we each picked one item to make with our bounty:
- apple pie with vanilla ice cream (Finley),
- apple crisp with vanilla ice cream (Daley),
- apple jack with vanilla ice cream (Tim),
- and roasted chicken with apples and leeks (Kristina).
Hmm…does that seem like a balanced diet to you?
