Apple picking is good clean fun to be enjoyed by everyone from families with kids to young love birds to me and my group of girlfriends just looking for a change of scenery.
Sunday, we ventured to Delano’s finest – Apple Jack Orchards, a magical fall fairyland of all things apples. You can pick them, of course. You can buy a wide array of them, from Cortland to Sweet Tango. You can shoot them out of a cannon. You can ride in a wagon through fields of them. And you can eat and drink them in cider, pull apart, pie, crisp and spice donut form.
Speaking of that donut, you must try it with a side of cinnamon ice cream. Heaven.
The visit felt really good – catching up with friends, enjoying the gorgeous sun and perfect fall weather, and getting to pick some nice apples right from the source.
Now I just need a plan for my jar of apple butter and seven pounds of Honeycrisps. Any ideas?
Until We Eat Again,
