Apple picking was a new experience for us. I have always wanted to go apple picking, but haven’t in the past because of the two hour drive to get there. I realized that the drive was never going to get any shorter and that we should just do it!
So we did.
Of course the photographs were just as important to me as the apples.
The sun was a battle, and so was color casting…but we tried to work it out in the few open shade spots that I found.
Orchards normally would make me long for color, but I’m really liking these conversions.
Tonight I made an apple crisp with 4 of our freshly picked Granny Smith apples. It was ugly, but great! We did a switch up on our ice cream flavor and served chocolate with the crisp. I highly recommend.
I still have 4 bags of apples to do something with. I think we are going to be all apple-d out by the end of the week.
