For all my moaning and groaning about winter and holiday stress - one thing I do love about living in Connecticut is apple picking! Jeff and I had an apple excursion with my in-laws recently. This orchard is right around the corner from my home. We are blessed to have 3 orchards within walking distance of our home and several more nearby.
My mother-in-law with a yummy example.
Look at all those sweet little orbs just begging to go into a homemade pie, applesauce, baked apple, etc., etc.!
I had to sample one as well! Yum!
This particular orchard also houses a store where you can buy already picked apples, candy, jams, cookies, and crafts.
Ah, the end of the road - time to go home and bake a pie!
