After a busy week of work, Allen and I headed up to North Georgia this morning to pick some apples at Mercier Orchards. We took Birch with us and just wandered the “aisles” of beautiful, natural apples. Apparently, the Pink Lady apples are at their peak right now and, Oh My Goodness… I have never tasted a more delicious apple!
There were so many different types of apples! Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Mutzu, Jonagold, Rome, Braeburn, Cameo, Limbertwig, Fuji, York, Staymen Winesap, and Arkansas Black. Have you ever heard of so many different apples? I had not. They also harvest blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes, anything you can think of, really.
Needless to say, I’ll be trying my hand at creative apple recipes this week: apple pie, apple butter, applesauce, apple cake, apple dumplings.
