Autumn in New England means the return of football season, colorful foliage, fairs, and delicious, crispy, local apples. Whether you crave the sweet crunch of a Honey Crisp apple, the juicy sweet flavor and vivid red color of a local favorite, the Macintosh apple, or love the Cortland apple, ideal for an apple pie or apple crisp, apple
picking is a quintessential New England fall favorite activity.
There is something special about packing the family into the car for an afternoon at a local orchard with its sweet, alluring scent, trees filled with ripe red fruit, bags overloaded with the best apples to bring home and a sampling or two of the apples direct from the trees! And, let’s face it, there are few things better than biting into a crisp, sweet, perfectly juicy apple!
