Apple season is upon us! It’s my favorite time of year, especially when I’ve got 44 POUNDS of apples fresh from the orchard. When I was a very young mom, my little guy — the one who’s now 16 — and I would drive down this windy, tree-lined canyon to the apple farm. We’d buy bags and bags of apples and come home and feast.
It is such a sweet memory of an earlier time.
Hubs was driving that way recently and I remembered the apple farm. I promptly called them and asked the price, whether or not they took debit cards, and what time they closed. I followed that up with an email to FishPapa, submitting my “order”. He more than delivered; he even brought home a bucket of caramel sauce. Yippee!
Now, I’ve got a lot of apples to process before our SoCal heatwave takes them down. (I’m really wishing I had a second refrigerator right about now.) Many of our favorite apple recipes can be frozen, so you can just guess what my plan is for the day.
Here’s a little bit of what we plan to do with them.
Pancakes with Apples and Whipped Maple Butter
Harvest Salad with Chicken, Apples, and Cheddar
