Apple picking is my favorite


Over the weekend, we went apple picking. Our annual trip to an apple orchard is one of my favorite days of the year, so I was giddy to take Maggie for the first time. 

Maggie stayed awake for the whole time. I think she likes being outside (or maybe just enjoys the change of scenery). It's such a joy to watch her take in the world. 


We've been to a few different orchards, but Honey Pot Hill is my favorite. The orchard is spread over a few hills and they have ladders throughout to get the apples you can't reach.  

They also have a farm store, where they sell caramel apples, cider, cider doughnuts and more. The cider doughnuts melt in your mouth! And we ate them before I thought about taking a photo...oops!






We brought home three kinds of apples: Empire, Cortland and McIntosh. I usually bake apple crisp, but I made apple sauce this year using this recipe. It was so easy...I might even make more!

Do you have a favorite fall apple treat?
