Apple picking りんご狩り

10/14/2018 We went on apple picking the other day. There are some apple orchards near our house and they offer “pick your own apples”.  Our mission was to pick fresh apples by ourselves, make apple pie filling and can them right away. Anyway, this is what we did.

2018年10月14日 我が家の周りにはリンゴを始め色々な果樹園があり、夏~秋にかけて旬のフルーツを楽しむことができます。この時期はリンゴがピークなので、私たちもリンゴ狩りに行ってきました。リッチ君は自分で採ったリンゴでアップルパイ用のフィリングを作る!と宣言していたので、事前に瓶(1リットルx24本)やら皮むき機などを準備してからリンゴ狩りに臨みました。やる気満々の人と、そんなに作る必要あるの?と弱気な私。

We picked a good sunny day. 天気が良くて気持ちよかったです。

These trees are fully loaded! 木は小さめですが、沢山のリンゴが生っています。

We ended up picking about 36lbs of apples for $36. $1 a pound, not too bad right?

There are Macouns, Fuji and mix(Mac, Cameo, early Fuji and some other varieties)

Peeled, cored, sliced apple are cooked in the syrup(sugar, lemon juice and water) for 5 mins.

Put the apple mixer into the mason jars.

They were boiled for 20 mins.

Everything was sealed tight and labeled. This is only a dozen so we have to go apple picking again and do another dozen very soon. Oh well…
