Rob and I went to the More Than Delicious Orchard in Woodstock, IL and had a nice time. They had a great variety of apples and I can’t wait to go back and see what new-to-me varities they will have next time. They sell Wealthy apples which are my absolute favorite for applesauce. I love making applesauce because the smell of cinnamon and apples fills the house. How should you serve your appleasauce? In a vintage Pyrex bowl of course!
I’ve never had a Pink Pearl apple before. They were fabulous! They decribed them as like biting into a SweetTart and it did remind me of that. They are really neat because, like the name suggests, they are pink inside.
If you’re looking for an apple orchard where the focus is actually on the apples, then check them out. This orchard reminded me of some of the small orchards we used to go to back in Michigan. We bought pre-picked this time but I look forward to picking apples soon. We also bought some delicious pears there too. They were yummy!
I love sunflowers and they were so pretty:
Actually, all the flowers there were very pretty:
The drive to the orchard was lovely too. It’s going to be gorgeous once the leaves turn.
