There's nothing quite like a fresh crisp apple...right from the orchard!
We have one teeny tree in our garden...and enjoyed every apple...right down to the last bite.
But the last apple...and the last bite...are now gone.
And so it was quite a nice surprise to find our Kelowna relatives on our doorstep one morning last week...
the ones who live in an apple orchard...
and the ones who are so very generous with their most delicious apples.
They stayed for a cup of coffee...
and left us a box of apples.
This is where those apples were not so long ago.
Most of them are now in bins...bound for market.
It seems the price of apples has not been that good these past few years...
and many good apples are being juiced.
Over the weekend...I stopped by my friend's place...
knowing there was an apple juicing party in progress.
I thought I would see how it was done.
I arrived a wee bit too soon.
Bev showed me the truckload of Okanagan apples...
about ready to hit the juicer.
I think I would have been working on the assembly line if I had stayed any longer!
One of these days I'll be back to sample the juice.
Have an apple...they are not only good for you...but so good!
Oh...and be sure to eat the peel...that's where the best nutrients are found.
