Fall is now in full swing and I've got autumn recipe ideas bursting out of my head. In the summer one of my favourite things to do is go berry picking and lucky for me the fruit farms don't close up for another few weeks - it's apple picking season! The next couple weeks are full of school deadlines and I took a much needed break this past weekend at Chudleigh's apple orchard to pick my weight (and maybe then some) in apples.
The honey crisps (seriously the best apples ever!) and the McIntoshes are out, and Mom and I loaded up to get ready for some fall baking. The honey crisps are just for eating, but we're planning on making some apple butter, apple chips, apple sauce, and freezing some for future pies, crisps and other delicious apple desserts. Though Chudleigh's is best if you're bringing the whole family along for a day of petting zoos, picnics, and playgrounds, they do have a fantastic apple selection - but if you're looking for straight up apple picking, I'd stick to your regular ol' fruit farm, There will be plenty of apple recipes coming up on the blog in the next few weeks but if you're ready to start some baking now why not try out this delicious apple rhubarb loaf or these apple and oat scones, your taste buds will definitely stay happy.
