It's Honey Crisp time

Posted by Picasa
After our outing to Maltby today, we headed over to the Fireside Orchard & Gardens on Hwy 19 and tasted quite a few varieties of apples in the refrigerated Apple Room. The Haralsons and Honey Crisps are fantastic, as are a few others whose names escape me at the moment. In the interests of local eating, I bought a bag of premium Honey Crisps, a half-gallon of fresh cider, and a jar of seedless blackberry jam (the jam's from Lodi, Wisconsin).

The roses outside were looking lovely, and the bees were enjoying them too -- there seemed to be a bee on or in almost every blossom, like this beauty. (Click on photo for larger version.)

I had to think for a second about which orchard you were talking about, since we refer to this place as "Apples Cider Cheese Fudge," after the sign on the west side of the building.
