It's October 6th and the fall harvest has begun. Nothing seems to sum up the fall harvest as much as apples do in America. Apples seem to be the unofficial official fruit of the season. But with so many types of deliciousness, which is your favorite? Granny Smith? Red Gala? MacIntosh? Lobo? Jonagold? Golden Delicious? At Johnny's house the apple at the top of the pecking order is the Honeycrisp. But what about your apple proclivities dear readers? Do you have a favorite eating apple and does that differ from your favorite cooking/baking apple?
If you're looking for an apple related event, Gothamist reminds us of one tomorrow when it's sure gonna feel like fall:
Of course, you could always rent a car and go apple picking. Sure. But then you have to leave the city. Closer to home is the lovely Queens County Farm Museum, which once again this weekend is hosting its annual Apple Festival from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Expect many types of apples, apple products and fresh apple cider for sale along with free kid's games, hayrides, collectibles and more. And if you get bored, or want to add a certain excitement to the trip, well the museum's giant Maize Maze is around until October 28th.
