We love being in upstate New York in the fall, so this weekend, we kicked off our last autumn here with a trip to Grisamore Farms to pick some apples.
It’s pretty early in the season, so there were only three varieties of apples available, but they were delicious. As a result, I think this was the only apple Lincoln actually picked…
…He preferred riding in the wagon and snacking. Who can blame him?
With the fruits of our labor (we picked about 16 pounds,) I decided to try my hand at canning. My friend Jenny gave me a lesson on canning tomatoes a few weeks ago and I thought it would be fun to make some applesauce and apple pie filling to have around. I think it worked out well, but the real test will be when I make the first pie.
