Saturday was always a special day for me. No work, except when I switched careers (with the same company) and the staff took turns working every other Saturday, with a day off during the week. Now in retirement, I simply want to avoid the traffic and stay put! Last Saturday was an exception, with my friend Kathy in town, and we headed out to Solebury Orchards in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
I found this organic apple orchard and berry farm while looking for an old inn I found online. I spotted a small wooden sign and just followed the arrow. I was not disappointed.
You can pick your own fruit in season (berries this time)
and vegetables and wildflowers.
My favorite product is their applesauce made with organic apples and nothing else. I have served this to many guests and have given it for gifts, everyone loves it. (Several jars were packed in Kathy's suitcase to take back home). Their apple butter is also delicious and you can get it without sugar. This time I tried the blueberry jam, and the jar is almost gone! Their apple cider is a must on my Thanksgiving table, and they always have bags of warm apple cider doughnuts. They also ship many of their products from their online store.
Why are heirloom tomatoes so funny looking but so flavorful?
Oh, that jam...........
