In all my life as a Canadian Citizen, I have never actually gone to an apple orchard and picked apples. Considering thats pretty much the most abundant fruit we grow here, that seems a bit silly to me. I fixed it this weekend by going to an orchard with some friends, and using our plunder to bake apple crisp (which was freaking delicious, and I didn't burn it. Huzzah!). We got a very neat stick and some bags and were set free to pick all the apples our little hearts desired. I have to say that I really don't think we were meant to climb the trees, but eventually I gave up trying to stop the guys from getting in shit and just joined in.
I'd like to try a bigger orchard next time, if I get the chance. This one was fairly small, but still fun all the same. Have you ever been apple picking? What's your favourite thing to do with the apples afterwards?
