This past Monday I took the kids on a very, very spur of the moment adventure - apple picking! I know what you are thinking: apples aren't until fall. Oh, so incorrect! There are actually two varieties available for picking now (at least in our area) - the Golden Delicious and the Braeburn. Last year I made applesauce from only Gravenstein apples, and the taste was, well...store-bought to say the least. I was excited that I would be able to match some sauce from two varieties this time. The taste is much better this time around!
