Crisp and golden…

Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple…

And so it begins — my favorite time of year. Crisp, sunny, mellow weather. New shots of colour in our surrounding trees. The freshest of fruit and vegetables. And time to enjoy my favorite of all apples, the honey crisp.

I didn’t know about the honey crisp until a few years ago. I think I first found it in a grocery store. Always on the lookout for something new and different in the produce section, I tried it. And was an immediate convert. Then I found a nearby orchard that grows it. Hallelujah!

The honey crisp is the quintessential eating apple. It has an unbelievably crisp and juicy texture. Its flesh is cream coloured and coarse. It is so hard to describe the flavour, but trust me, if you love apples, there is nothing like it.

  1. Totally agree – Honey Crisp are the best. Last year Michigan lost all their apples due to a very warm spell in March and then a heavy frost in April. This year there is a wonderful bounty again. Thank goodness.

  2. I know what you mean Laurie..love the fall, the winter not so much! Yes, I read it too. Wish it could have happened this year, but I hope there will be other opportunities! Love it when you visit!

  3. This is the time of year where I regret my decision to move south…I LOVED the fall up north…but that is all I loved. LOL. Apple picking just one of my favorite things to do in this gorgeous season. You captured it so beautifully my friend. PS…I just read Kim Orts post on the Niagra retreat…oh I wish the two of us could of went together…looks like a blast.

  4. Love all of your images here Sherry. So beautiful and fresh. Like you, I also am a newbie to Honey Crisp. I first discovered them on a photo tour to the Eastern Sierra Mountains. One of the other students brought them for everyone one day as a snack. Might not remember everything about that trip but I do remember the apples.

  5. The Honey Crisp is my absolute favorite!!
    I actually made a pie using them, last weekend. It lasted about 2 days!
    These are beautiful images, Sherry. I especially love the first one.

  6. Sherry that is a lovely story and your description of the Honey Crisp has me wanting to go seek them out. I believe I may have tried one, but now for certain I’m going to look for them at the market on Saturday. Your photos are incredibly beautiful

  7. I just love that first shot of the wooden containers and the background fading out into a gorgeous blur! I’ll have to look out for Honey Crisps over here! My favourite apple is Cox’s Orange Pippïn! They are russet coloured and have the sweetest of aromas and are also juicy with a cream-coloured flesh. Apples! My favourite fruit!

  8. Such beautiful photography…it screams “September” but in a soft voice…like a whisper. And yes, those Honey Crisp apples are amazing! Now of course, I want one! 🙂

  9. Sherry, my heart just stopped for a sec looking at this photo. aww, how beautiful! Have a lovely day over there in wonderful Ontario (over there makes me think how close Canada’s to my heart. yes. 🙂 )
