{wear in the world: apple picking}


I've only ever been apple picking once in my life and it happened appropriately enough when I lived in Boston. I learned very quickly that apple picking is a very quintessential East Coast thing to do. I loved it! We spent a good part of the day picking apples and then brought our bounty home, where I proceeded to experience another first -  making a homemade apple pie. You know, it wasn't as difficult as I thought. I ask you, how can anything with generous amounts of butter, sugar, and cinnamon taste bad? Should you find yourself sitting on a bushel of apples, here's a recipe for you that is touted as the easiest apple tart. Mmm, powered sugar. Shall we give it a try?

  1. I need that knit beanie in my life, stat! I guess I never realized how "east coast" apple picking was, but now that you mention it, it's definitely a fall staple around here! So much fun to tromp through the orchards and pick the fruit off the tree. I went a few weekends ago (two weekends? wow, where does the time go??) and already can't wait until next year. Love this WitW! xo

  2. Sweater, yes please. Red Hunters, yes please. Overalls....ahhh ummmm.... Let me think about that one. Callum has been having apples every morning for breakfast and I make an apple pie that he and Neel love. Might need to get on that this weekend. Thanks for the inspiring WitW!

  3. Great post! Apple picking is kind of a big deal way down here too (Atlanta;). And even though the weather rarely warrants it, I practically live in my Hunter boots in the cooler months.

  4. Apple picking is quite big here in the UK, especially in the South West.  I used to pick apples as a kid with my mum in the Summer holidays, remember it like it was yesterday, dodging all the bloody wasps.  We weren't as perfectly dressed though, I love the hunter wellies x

  8. Oh this I really want to do on the East Coast.  I 'picked' apples in LA, meaning I plucked two off of the tiny bush in the front yard

  9. Apple picking is so much fun. In the house I grew up in Germany we had  apple trees in our garden. Somehow I don't remember my mother ever making anything with them. What a waste and shame!

    Ha. Of course that apple pie would taste delicious... try making one without all that butter and sugar:)
    At one of the markets i visit one stand has started selling home-made apple crumble without sugar. It actually tasted delicious because their farm specialises in apples.

    Nice collage:)

  10. I grew up on the edge of an apple orchard so I've been apple picking a lot as a kid. The apples usually just went straight to my mouth from the tree ;) In the last years I developed an allergy to raw apples, it's quite unfortunate because I love the taste and they are such a great snack food on the go. Luckily I can still eat apple pie and other desserts where the apples have been cooked or baked...That easiest apple tart recipe sounds delicious!

  11. I'm assuming you wouldn't actually wear those dungarees T???

    We had apples trees in our garden too. I hate apple pie but I LOVE apple crumble and apple tarte tatin, both of which I make extremely well if I do say so myself. x
