When we moved up here to VA, one of the things that we were looking forward to and hoping for was the chance to go apple-picking again. We had such a great time doing that all three fall seasons that we spent in New York!
Now that we have made it into September, I’ve begun searching for apple orchards in the area. I’ve found a few that are close by. Some even have peaches still on trees for a week or two. I believe the kids and I will go apple-picking with our homeschool group sometime further into the fall, but our family is planning to go soon, in time to get apples and peaches. The peaches on our trees have been eaten by something……:(
My plan is to get enough apples to make applesauce, some pie filling, and anything else I can think of…..hoping to can the applesauce and filling, my first time trying that. The peaches, if we get enough, will be treated the same way. And we’ll eat several pounds fresh, of course!
What will you all make with your apples this fall? I would love to see your ideas in the comments section!
