So I’m probably doing this backwards. I showed you the pie before the actual picking of the apples, but a hot apple pie waits fro no one! I digress. Above are some shots from a perfect pre-fall afternoon in Brooksby orchard. it was the first possible weekend for apple picking so beth, pete, & I jumped at the chance to over-stuff little plastic peck bags & devour as many apples as we could stomach before emerging from the cover of the trees. i hope this is the first of many orchard visits this fall, because there are so many apple pie recipes i want to try out. my next venture is this one with a cheddar crust. mmmm!
