Over the weekend Aaron and I made a trip to Charlottesville’s Carter Mountain for some good ole fashioned apple picking.
It had been a few years since I’d made it to Carter Mountain, so I was downright shocked at the amount of people who were there. Thankfully there were still plenty of apples to be had. (We stocked up on Fuji and Granny Smiths!)
Once we were deep within the orchard it was much more peaceful.
It was a beautiful afternoon, but as usual, I ended up with a few more apples than necessary. So what’s a girl to do?
Bake an apple cake, of course!
Have any of y’all been apple picking this year? What are your favorite fresh apple recipes?
