Apple Core... Who's it For?

One of the fun things we did this weekend was check out the annual Apple Harvest Festival.  


Seems some people arrived in the area after the Civil War and planted an orchard of apple trees.  Those same trees have survived and are still producing apples.  


  I love apples, and I especially love this time of year with the weather changing and those crisp juicy apples just ready for the eating!


I have to admit we bought a flat of a variety of apples, and I can't wait to start making all kinds of yummy things!  Here are some pics from the festival located right on Main Street... Lots of good food and some great music!


And, it wouldn't be apple season without some tarty apple cider...

You have made me think of apple crumble. I must make some for our evening meal.
I once tried cider at a friends. It was summer and instead of our usual cup of tea she offered me some cider. We drank it like lemonade, because of the heat I suppose. Then we caught ourselves laughing at anything and everything. We were tiddly. We were both so naive back then and didn't know it could be alcoholic. It was a 'lovely' afternoon, until we had to collect the children from school. Woops!
I'm glad you enjoyed your day out. I enjoyed how it brought back some 'blasts from the past' for me. lol
