Apple Picking in August?

20140831-224301.jpg

It was a beautiful, sunny, somewhat muggy August morning. We decide to go pick some delicious peaches to make the perfect cobbler. Our last grasp at summer … CRUSHED. At Erie Orchards the winter hit so hard not enough peaches came in for u-pick… buuuuut, some Pink Lady and Macintosh apples were available.

We have on our sun hats, sunscreen and we are sweating… Picking apples… It was surreal. That didn’t stop us from picking a BUSHEL!!

We filled four HUGE bowls and placed them in the sunniest window in the house because they were a little green inside AND out!

Apple pie will just have to do! Plus, some apple cobbler, apple sauce, cubed apples for oatmeal, dehydrated apple slices…

What’s YOUR favorite apple recipe?
