This was our view from our table in the Applehouse Restaurant. Notice the horses grazin' between rows of apple trees. Gorgeous.
After lunch we browsed the market.
You can buy apples in 1/2 peck bags, by the peck, half-bushel or......
or by the bushel.
Shelves are lined with jugs of flavored ciders....
Locally made jams of all flavors.....
There's fresh produce to choose from, too.
Pumpkins are in abundance in all shapes.
Indian corn for decorating....
Aren't theses gourds adorable.
Mums for potting or planting in your yard.
And fresh-squeezed apple cider processed on the premises.
I bought a 1/2 bushel of red delicious apples and a small bag each of these beauties for cookin'. From left to right are Pinova, Candy Crisp and Arkansas Black. They're all cookin' apples. We had fried apples at breakfast this mornin'...so good.
ETA: They are similar to what you get at a restaurant like Cracker Barrel, only better when homemade. ;)
4-5 large apples (Golden Delicious are best)
4 T. butter
sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
Peel and slice the apples. Melt butter in skillet on medium heat and add apples. Fry until tender. Serve warm. Makes 4 servings.
Hope you're having a wonderful autumn. :)
