Apple Picking, Our 100th Post

Apple picking has been a family tradition since before I was born.

It is always a pleasant day, walking among the apple trees, munching on crisp shiny apples, and trying to find only the most perfect apples to put in the bag.

We picked mostly Jonathan's this year, but we always throw in a sampling of some of the others.

I like Jonathan's because I think they make the best pies. They hold their shape in pies, but don't dry out in the oven and are just the right mix of apple-y tartness.

Occasionally I'll throw in a few red or green delicious to add sweetness, and they break down just enough to give the pie some creaminess.
