Apple Picking

Apple Picking 4

One of the highlights of fall in this area is apple picking. Among the colorful foliage of the season are the apple orchards which are laden with all kinds of different apples waiting for the picking. Last weekend, we went picking with my niece at the UMass Cold Spring Orchard, a research facility of UMass Amherst with over 100 varieties of apples.

After having picked a bushel of mixed varieties, we made batches of apple pie, apple crisp and apple sauce. Sadly, we took no pictures of the baking, but I tell you, it was delicious.
