This past weekend when Grandma was visiting we went on an apple picking excursion. We went back to a favorite and popular orchard called Honey Pot Farm in Stow, MA.
It was a slightly overcast day but that did not dampen our spirits from trekking through the orchard in search of the tastiest apples. We were able to pick Empire, Cortland and the even a few Macintosh (although Matt and I think they are a sad excuse for an apple, always mealy).
Oliver climbed every ladder he could get his hands on and he thoroughly enjoyed filling up his bag until it was too heavy to carry without dragging on the ground.
Back at home we made the apple crisp from the recipe I noted before. I’ll be honest, mine did not look as gorgeous and crispy as the recipe photo and I was feeling a little bummed. But as soon as we tasted it, it was a winner.
Apple picking, a definitive New England experience.
