Okay the title got you to look at the blog.. my mother used to say this to me, when I was "in trouble"( lol)
I hope everyone gets to visit an apple orchard this fall. Apple picking is so much fun, relaxing morning or afternoon. Take time to ponder the beautiful autumn colors and breathe the fresh air of the country.. Nothing like Autumn in New England. I digress..
I am amazed at the apple varieties, from sweet to tart, to everything in between. There's an apple for everyone. There are also so many recipes available. You can get them online. Just go to the Food network website and type in Apple recipes in the search feature
My personal favorite is the Macoun.
Other Varieties are:
Ginger Gold, Zestar, Sansa, Akane, Paula red, Gravenstein,Honeycrisp, Golden Supreme
Early Fuji, CrimsonCrispm McIntosh, Gala. Cortland. Shizuka: Macoun, Honeygold, EmpireSpencer, Crimson Topaz , Hampshire Mac, Creston, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Idared , Cameo, Mutsu, Liberty, Macintosh, and I am sure there are more.
I also hear you can store some apples for months and months.
