So Saturday afternoon we decided to take the kids to Legend Hills Orchard to go apple picking. They had many different varieties in season. I love golden delicious apples, and they were in season!
We met up with my parents who live near the orchard and the kids had a blast.
I picked a couple, but the kids did the rest. We ended up filling 4 bags with apples. Each bag held 20lbs of apples!
We ended up bringing 3 of the bags home with us (60lbs of apples!) and my mom took 1 home with her. The u-pick apples were $15 for one bag, so they worked out to about $0.75 a pound. That is a great price for fresh apples!
Yesterday, Benjamin and I started processing some of the apples. We made a pot of crockpot applesauce for dinner. That used up 12 of the apples so I still have a ton more to use up and eat. My kids love apples though, so none will go to waste!.
Has anyone else been apple picking?
Do you have a favorite recipe that uses apples?
