We’ve noticed lately that apple trees around here are profuse with ripening fruit. Once we began to pay attention it seemed as if there were loaded apple trees everywhere.

This was one of a small orchard of five or six trees covered with apples. Strong winds the night before meant I went home with a bag of gorgeous fallen fruit that begged to become a pie, with plenty left over for more apple goodies. (Thank you, Blythe!)

  1. Thank you, Kay, for taking some! – and as you can see, there are plenty more where those came from! (next year, I promise to be more vigilant about thinning!)

    This has been an amazing year for fruit. We complained about our cold, wet spring, but the weather must have been calm long enough for the bees to get to the flowers. So sorry to hear of major crop losses for our friends to the north – all it takes is a cold snap at a sensitive time.

  2. yesyes, dutch apple pie is very good! (i had some apple pie in california too, in a mountain tiny town named Julian!)
    i think you definitely need to add the almond paste, it makes it even better (tim doesnt notice, he says, but i guess he will miss it if we leave it out); although this is not standard in dutch apple pies; its in the more luxurious versions.. šŸ˜‰
    we like to eat it still warm, and for even more calories its generously topped with whipped pie (thats how you would get it in a dutch cafe, with a coffee or tea). im curious how you will like it!

  3. I haven’t seen an apple tree for so long. We don’t have ’em in Florida. Orange trees we’ve got but I miss apple trees and homemade apple pie! Why is my mouth watering?
