Apple picking is one of my favorite family autumn activities. I love getting my kids outdoors in nature and hunting for the biggest, roundest, reddest fruits we can find. We usually collect a big wagon's worth--taste testing some along the way--and leave the orchard with an impressive bounty. Over the next few weeks, my we eat a LOT of apples. At last one goes in each lunchbox and then we try to find new and delicious ways to cook and bake with them. But I also save some for few tried-and-true eats and treats.
