Throwback Thursday: The Apple of my Eye
We had a wonderful package arrive in the mail today, a shipment of 20 Haralson Apples from Aamodt's Apple Farm in Stillwater, MN.
We lived in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area of MN for about 2 1/2 years, quite a few years ago, and often went to the charming town of Stillwater, on the St. Croix River between MN and WI. There were some neat shops and restaurants there and we also discovered the area orchards.
In particular we grew to love Haralson apples - they have been hard to find elsewhere, even when living in apple country in suburban Boston (while we can go pick apples in Julian CA in the mountains an hour from Carlsbad, they just don't compare) so every now and then we order a box as a treat.
Aamodt's also has Honeycrisp apples which are also a fave, but we can get those here in the stores occasionally. The Haralson apples always bring back fond memories of living in MN (despite those cold winters).
