Apple Picking!!!

Warwick Winery- Apple Picking

Last week in South Texas I wasn’t feeling very into fall. The weather was warm and I was enjoying the sun. This weekend back in the North I was thrown into Fall weather and I loved it!

We spent Saturday doing the Tri-State Tough Mudder (race review to come soon!) then Sunday we took our bruised and sore bodies to do some apple picking in Warwick, NY. To celebrate P and I’s 3rd anniversary we spent the day taste testing many apples… and some wine at the Warwick Winery. I highly recommend the winery and apple farm to any one in the area. It’s the best of both world. The farm started producing hard apple cider years ago then expanded to gin and wine. Lots of apples, live music and fun! I’ve never been apple picking before, maybe we just┬ádon’t have any apple farms in Oklahoma.

Mid October is late season for apples. Late season apples are as follows:

  • Ashmead Kernal
  • Autumn Gala
  • Baldwin
  • Belle de Boskoop
  • Beni Shogun
  • Cameo
  • Crispin (Mutsu)
  • Fuji
  • Gold Rush
  • Golden Delicious
  • Keepsakes
  • Northern Spy
  • Pink Lady
  • Spy Gold
  • Winesap (Stayman)

Have you even heard of half of those?!?!?! It was so much fun to get to test taste so many different types. We even found some new favorites.

I can’t wait to make an apple pie with these Baldwin apples, sort of tart sort of sweet. Perfect for a pie!

I got several golden delicious apples so I can test out a new homemade apple sauce recipe. Plus they are P’s favorite.

My favorite new find is the Beni-Shogun’s, sweet and crisp. There is nothing better than a crisp apple in my book. This apple is similar in taste to a Fuji but a crisper texture.

We filled that bag to the brim… So many apples to bake with :)

Apple Picking Such beautiful country and I had the perfect person to share it with! Three years sure do fly.

Words can not express my happiness when I saw it!!!

After this weekend I’m ready for fall, bring on the comfy sweaters and hot chocolate.

  4. Hey girl! I love apple picking but the apples out here are not like they are back east or in the Midwest. There is only one local apple that we love and it’s a Gravenstein apple. You can only get them in August, but they are amazing and oh so sweet! My favorite apple of all time but is the macintosh. I LOVE those, but unfortunately we can’t get them out here in Cali! Looks like you had a fun fall day! xoxo, Jackie

  5. YES! Warwick Winery is terrific, and so much more than apple picking! I’ve enjoyed venturing up there with my family (who live in north, north New Jersey) and spending the whole afternoon: tasting, picking, and enjoying some entertainment!

    I enjoy many apples….Gala and Pink Lady are two faves!

  6. I take all of the apple orchards nearby for granted — I guess that’s the one benefit of living in Michigan! I’m pretty impressed by that brussels sprouts stalk,. I don’t think I would’ve been able to resist it.
