Kevin and me at the start of our picking adventure! (Notice the still empty bags.)

SO fresh and delicious!
After picking, at Sunken Meadow Park.
It was a total blast, and we picked about 16 pounds of apples! Please don't judge us when I tell you that we finished them this weekend (a mere week later). The folks at Fort Salonga Farm were incredibly nice and very helpful. They had three types of apples up for picking while we were there: Jonagold, Mutsu, and Red Delicious. (The first two were our favorites, but they were all yummy.) After we picked, we grabbed some of their flavored honey straws in clover, lemon, raspberry, and blackberry. They were also incredibly tasty.
We ate the apples as is, in slices, and in two different kinds of applesauce! And enjoyed every minute of it. We're trying to decide if it's possible to make one more trip out there before the season ends, maybe grab some Fuji and/or Granny Smith. Needless to say, we WILL be doing this again. I'm addicted!
Thank you, Fort Salonga, for making my #14 come true!
