Apples!

I love apples & one of the definite perks to living in Michigan is apples in the fall!  It doesn’t get any better than this, folks – ever bite into a fresh picked Michigan apple on a crisp fall day?  If so, then you know what I’m talking about!  So here’s a little bit on some of the apple enjoyments I’ve had & I’d love to hear any suggestions from you on the subject as well…

Visit the Dexter Cider Mill in Dexter, MI for some delicious & fresh apple cider & then go just down the road to Jenny’s Farm Market for some fresh pumpkin doughnuts (they have cider, pumpkins, & fall mums, etc. too) to pair with your cider – yum!

Spicer Orchards has become my favorite place for pick your own produce.  They have some great apples & pumpkins in the fall, among other things (including fresh apple cider & doughnuts), & they’ll give you a hay ride out to the orchard.

Some other orchards that we’ve had the pleasure of picking apples & pumpkins at & that also serve fresh cider & doughnuts at are Wasem Fruit Farm in Milan, MI & Wiard’s in Ypsilanti, MI; Wiard’s has more of a theme park feel than Spicer or Wasem & includes things like haunted houses & you pay for parking there.

And since we’re on the subject of apples, one of my favorite apples is the Honeycrisp apple.  They are sweet & tart & crisp & perfect & if you haven’t had one you should make it a point to find one & eat it up as soon as possible – you’ll thank me later, I’m sure!

What did I have for breakfast this morning, you ask?  Fresh, hot apple cider & homemade waffles topped with apples & cinnamon, mmm…delicious!

  1. Yummy! It all looks and sounds delicious. Here in Texas, we are just relieved that super summer has passed and we are enjoying some cool and wet weather for a change! Not breaking out the blankets, but the air conditioners don’t run continually now.
