Friday we headed to Green Bluff with the Divine Mrs. M to pick some apples from her favorite apple orchard, Yaryan's. She's been going to this place for years and it was easy to see why. These people baby their apples...truly. They don't let customer pick the Honeycrisp apples because they say the plants are too fragile and they can't take the chance. We had a terrific selection of McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Swiss Gourmet, Gala, and Golden Delicious (I know there were more, but that is all I can remember off the top of my head.) My family likes a sweet/tart apple (not so tart as a Granny Smith, but definitely not sweet like a Red Delicious), so I bought us Honeycrisp and McIntosh...at $0.89/lb and $0.69/lb respectively!!!
It was crisp, but gorgeous.
Look at all those bins of apples.
It was huge! Look at the scale...it weighed one pound all by itself! Crazy...look at the container of Clorox Wipes or the pencil box to the left for visual scale. That apple was HUGE. (Mr. Yaryan was talking about how small his apples were this year!!)
Apple pie, apple crisp, apple turnovers...they're all in our immediate future. Yippee!
