Apple Days

Last week I volunteered at a local church for their annual Apple Days festival. It’s a week long event, where a bunch of people come together to turn apples into delicious things like apple butter, pies, dumplings, and cookies. I happened to show up on Dumpling Day, and had so much fun working in the kitchen. Below are some pictures from the day:



Now that apple season is in full swing – what is your favorite way to eat an apple? Right off the tree? Baked in a pie? Tell me in the comments!

About Brie Aronson

Brie Aronson came to Polyface from southern California. During college, she was diagnosed with food allergies and had to begin asking about the source of every single thing she put in her mouth. This led to an interest in all things food and she sought out a way to learn how it can be produced ethically and sustainably. Her desire is to help people shift their focus from counting calories, being intimidated by their kitchens, and being disconnected from the land to one that experiences the life-giving enjoyment of food. Having completed the internship in summer 2010, she now assists with the buying clubs and sales building, leads school tours of the farm, and will be the summer 2012 farm cook.

    That looks so yummy! I don’t think I’ve ever had an apple dumpling… Favorite way to eat apples? Probably just fresh. I love the crisp, juiciness!

    Georgia actually has some pretty awesome apple orchards, but they’re about 2 hrs north of where I live. Your post made me want to take a day trip out there!

    Just made apple butter for the first time in my life…awesome!!
    I like to can apple-pie-in-a-jar. Then I can just whip up a pie crust and pour it in!
