Fall is here
It's time to enjoy pumpkins, apples, and all kinds of fall goodies. Locally, many orchards are opening their doors to the public and offer good deals on bushels and buckets of apples. Having grown up in California, where fall consisted of what we called "Indian Summer", we were never accustomed to apple orchards or beautiful foiliage in the fall months. Up here, there are all kinds of farms that open up that offer great deals, tours of their farms, and even mazes for kiddos.
This weekend I'm hoping to take my family to a local apple orchard and grab some apples. One place I heard of offers five pounds of Jonagold apples for only $8! That is a steal!
I think with all of the apples I buy, I will probably make some apple butter (per my cousin's instructions), maybe try to find out how to can some apple slices, and maybe I'll even make my own cider!
Bring on Fall! I tell you, I have been DEPRIVED in my life. Fall is by far, my favorite season.
