Fall in the New England is the best! For so many reasons, but one of them is for the hundreds of local apple orchards all over the area. My kids always laugh at how excited I get when the date arrives for us to go apple picking as a family! We eat an obscene amount of warm cider donuts, climb trees to find THE perfectly ripe apple, pick a giant pumpkin and chase each other through the orchard – good old fashion fun! When we load up our car and head home we then get to create all the amazing apple recipes I grew up inhaling…homemade applesauce topping the charts, next to apple pie, apple crisp, apple cake and of course carmel apples! YUM!
