Last weekend we were invited by some friends to go apple picking at an orchard in Sebastopol, and we had THE BEST TIME. What is better than sunshine, wine, cheese, dirty farm kids and fresh handpicked apples?? Especially on the first official day of Fall. Perfection. We filled basket after basket and came home with 36lbs of apples (!!!). I've since made my very first apple pie and apple butter, which is to die for if I do say so myself. Apple butter recipe is on my Pinterest page here.
If you live in the Bay Area, I highly recommend this farm...Twin Hill Ranch. All apples are $1.00 per pound. Also? The little road to the farm is FULL of antique shop after antique shop, which I am definitely going back to someday. Minus the husband, kid 1 + kid 2. Mom????
