We went apple picking for the first time this fall today. We first headed to Larriland Farm, only to realize that they are closed on Mondays. Oops! Good thing we knew about another pick-your-own farm not too much farther away. We drove out to Rock Hill Orchard and picked apples; Jonathan, Empire, Jonagold, and a handful of Golden Delicious for Jillian.
The apple dishes began tonight. I made a casserole of baked apples with cinnamon and raisins as a side for dinner. And we have enough left to go with pork chops later this week! Tomorrow evening I'm going to start some crock pot apple butter. Score! I may even bake a pie this year!
Jillian enjoyed our apple picking experience too!!
She calls them "bapples"! Of course, she was saying this non-stop while we were picking apples. At home, though, she wouldn't say it for me quite as much. I got a couple "bapples" out of her for the video camera to share!
