Apple Hill Season
Hi everyone, and happy 1st day of fall! I’m Gabby, a new member of the SacFoodies team and I can’t wait to share my perspective on all things edible.
For my first SacFoodies post, I thought it fitting to feature something near and dear to my heart: Apple Hill. My grandparents live and have an orchard right in the heart of all the quaint mountain farms, and I have grown up working, playing and (most importantly) eating amongst them all! So, since this last weekend marked the opening for Apple Hill’s 50th Season and my grandpa’s birthday, a trip up the hill was in order!
I couldn’t resist stopping at one of my favorite bakeshops – Kids Incorporated – and picking up a piece of French Style Apple Pie à la mode. Okay so maybe that “piece” turned into a whole pie, but it was delicious either way!
Overall, this day trip was a wonderful way to escape the heat of summer, and get ready for the colors and flavors of fall.
