Are you looking for something fun to do this fall? One delicious way to celebrate autumn is to visit a local apple orchard. A day at the orchard can include fresh apple cider, warm doughnuts and hayrides as well as pick-your-own apples. It’s a wonderful way to spend some time with people you love and support local farmers at the same time.
When you get home, you can continue the fun by canning apple pie filling made with some of your freshly picked apples. Don’t worry if you’ve never canned anything before because we’ve got you covered. These beautiful jars full of pie filling will make the deliciousness last all winter long. Just pop one open anytime to fill a pie shell, make an apple crisp, pour over ice cream or even eat straight out of the jar. Yum!
