Visit to the Orchard

We took a trip to Shelburne Orchards this afternoon to pick some apples.  The place is beautiful and they almost seem to have more apples than they can handle.  We picked our fill pretty quickly.  Then we came home and ate two pies.  First, tofu pot pie for dinner (tastiest stuff ever–if tofu scares you, you should try this), then apple pie for dessert.  We ate the apple pie a little late–just before the children went to bed–but I could hardly say no to them after all the anticipation.  I had made the crust ahead of time, but still, it needs to bake for over an hour.  It was, as you might imagine, de-lish.  Worth the wait.  And we still have plenty of apples left over for tomorrow.  And the next day.

  1. what a lovely pie!

    but have eaten lots

    Thanks for sharing your sweet day. Cheers!

  2. Lots of people are intimidated by pies, especially the crust. I think it is fairly simple, although it may take a little practice to make a crust just the way you like it. I hope you make a pie soon. Tis the season, after all.
