Trip to Apple Hill 2020

 


I headed up to Placerville and the area known as Applehill. It is a great area with many small farms where you can pick apples and get anything you want with apples. They also have activities for the whole family at the different farms. I went a little late in the season, so a lot of the apples had been already picked:













And there were products that included apples:



And some food:

A chili dog with a chicken apple sausage

An apple crumb cake

A apple dumpling with ice cream


Apple donuts

And if you are one of my students that I teach, you got to watch this goofy video I shot (Sorry, it is not great and I have a voice made for mime):

  8. So many varieties of apples, different colors and I'm sure different flavors, too.

    I actually came through Placerville on Saturday en route to Nevada (subject of my WW this week).

    Hope you are well and have a great week.

  9. There's nothing like the taste of fresh apples picked ripe off the tree. I miss Rome Beauties here; best fried and baking apples ever! I guess I just miss the old fashioned apples of my childhood. Lovely post. Been to Placerville in my youth. California always had the best roadside stands for fresh produce.

  12. As someone who lives in one of the apple growing regions of New York State, I was most interested in the varieties available in Placerville. Some are what you would see at our apple markets but - no Honeycrisp or Autumn Crisp, no Cortland, no Northern Spy (best baking apple)? On the other hand, I have never seen Arkansas Black (which I know as an heirloom variety that develops its flavor after some storage, but have never tasted). I would really enjoy visiting "one day".

  14. It's interesting how creative people can be. I bet the apple sausage is really good although I can't imagine apple ketchup. Actually, that's quite disturbing to think about :)

    It's great to see your link at 'My Corner of the World' this week !!

  15. I watched your video! Now I know how to say your last name. I used a German pronunciation in my mind. The apples were interesting to see. Golden Delicious is popular in South Africa, but our family prefers Cripps Pink or Pink Lady, which is another popular one. I wonder if you have tried them. From the internet: This sweet-tart apple has high sugars and high acids with a crisp bite and effervescent finish. It tends to fall more towards the tart side than sweet but is oh so refreshing!
    Thanks for linking on Amanda’s Books and More and for subscribing to my daughter’s YouTube channel! That was very sweet of you.

  18. This looks like a fun place to visit! I had wanted to take the boys apple picking this year and we never quite got around to it. And now I do believe it is too late. Thanks for sharing these fun photos and linking with me.
