Was it really Fall if you didn’t go apple picking?

On the first day of fall, I wrote myself a “Fall Hitlist”. One of the things on there – to the surprise of no one – was apple picking. Apple picking is fun with friends and family, and a great date idea. The leaves are changing colours, you’re in the great outdoors, and you can eat as many apples as you want. Seriously. Nobody says anything. And thanks to the apple-a-day rule, you don’t have to visit the doctor for at least a year.* More time for activities!

With temperatures of almost 20 degrees, this was definitely the weekend to do it. We visited Carl Laidlaw farm, and LOVED it. Its got tons of apple varieties, a great view, and the ultimate fall-y vibe. Definitely an amazing spot for apple picking.

Red Delicious used to be my favourite apple. But then I got older, and wiser, and tried a Honey Crisp.

You know what goes great with apple? Cheese. And how about THAT for a view

We walked around searching for the “best” apple. We also ended up with 30+ “best” apples each. One perk of having a tall boyfriend is that no apple was off limits. And I took advantage of it.

After our bags were full, we took some fun pictures, sat by the water and I got corn on the cob, as per my never-pass-up-corn-on-the-cob rule.

We paid for our apples, and headed home where I turned them into apple crumble for our families.

The apple crumble was such a hit that I have to share it. The recipe didn’t originally call for a crust on the bottom, but I used one and got a whopping zero complaints about it because the crust is arguably the best part.  Any crust should work, so use a recipe that you enjoy. Or even use one from frozen!

I love this recipe. Ugh. Such an easy crowd pleaser.

Adapted from Epicurious:

INGREDIENTS

  •  2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats (I used quick oats because I forgot to pick up the old fashioned kind, and it still worked great!)
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of slightly cool unsalted butter
  •  3 large apples peeled and in slices (I used Granny Smith and Spartan), or 5 smaller apples
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Mix oats, 1 cup sugar, and flour in a bowl. Add in your butter; rub it in with your fingertips until its mostly combined, breaking down any large clumps of butter.
  • Mix apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of brown sugar in bowl.
  • Transfer your apple mixture to a pie crust, or a greased baking dish. Top generously with the crumble mixture.
  • Bake your creation until apples are soft and topping is brown and crisp. Mine took about an hour.
  • Let it cool a bit, and then serve with vanilla ice cream!!
  • Vanilla ice cream is not optional here…Trust me on this one.

ENJOY and YOU ARE WELCOME

*I’m not a doctor and cannot actually confirm the apple-a-day rule. I also did not eat 365 apples… it was upwards of 5 and downwards of 18.
