Apple picking

This weekend we took the kids apple picking. We all loved it so much! The apple farm was about an hour’s drive from Toronto, but so worth the trip. Already, we’ve made apple crumble and apple cake, and already we finished both! The wine cellar has temporarily been converted to an apple cellar, and there are plans for apple sauce and apple cider, apple blossoms, apple bread and just plain old apples in lunch boxes and salads etc. We picked a variety called Silken, which are just super tasty and crispy. In a couple of weeks, we are going back for the McIntosh. They were a little tart this week and need a few more cold nights to get ready, we were told. Hot dogs and corn on the cob for lunch, then to the petting zoo, and finally the play area. It was pretty much a perfect day!
