I went to Kuipers Family Farm today with my friend Beth. We wanted to pick some apples and take a look at the orchard store. They had five varieties available: Golden Supreme, Gala, Prima, Jonamac and McIntosh. I got quite a few of the Golden Supreme for eating and the Prima for baking. I only brought two Gala apples home and gave two Jonamacs to my mom. The McIntosh were so picked over there was nothing but squishy rotting apples left. Yuck!
The orchard store had a variety of tasty treats for the taking, including sauces, salsas, dressings and baked good mixes. I bought this cheddar garlic bread mix and was very excited to try it. I even mixed freshly grated cheddar cheese into the mixture.
Here’s a close up of one of the slices. See the delicious cheese swirls.
I also got some Lavendar Honey Sauce, Balsamic Vinaigrette, Sweet Onion Sauce and Chipotle Salsa. There were also some trinkets that I got for Christmas gifts, none of which I’ll reveal here. You’ll just have to wait!
The orchard was out past my mom’s in Maple Park so we made that our meeting point. I was able to pick up my hanging plant I forgot the last time I was there, so I hung it right when I got home. My kitchen window is starting to get a bit cluttered but I still really like it. The basket and plant really work best here. I did have to move my bell over from the right to the left side.
