Celebrate Autumn by Spending a Day at an Apple Orchard!

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 @ 11:10 AM Karen Hood

Autumn has finally arrived in Spokane, Washington in the Inland Northwest, with cooler temperatures, leaves turning to brilliant shades of gold, orange, and red, and harvest time on the local farms. What better way to enjoy the turning of the seasons than to bundle up the family and head out for an afternoon spent in the fresh, crisp autumn air and pick out a harvest of your own? Many locally owned orchards offer the opportunity to pick your own apples right off the trees, which is a fun and educational experience for people of all ages. None of the Spokane area orchards charge a fee for picking the fruit, just the per pound price of the apples you take home. Bring home a bushel of delicious, farm fresh apples for making your own homemade applesauce and desserts, or simply enjoy the crisp, tart and sweet taste of your favorite apple variety as an afternoon snack.

And while you’re reveling in all this autumnal joy, don’t forget to pick up a copy of Karen Jean Matsko Hood’s latest cookbook, Apple Delights. Packed with over 200 flavorful recipes that use everyone’s favorite fruit in tantalizing and creative ways, Apple Delights is a must-have for any kitchen. You can read a review of the cookbook here, and in the meantime check out this list of u-pick apple orchards in the Spokane area!
