Our Blue Mountain farm-grown Baked Apples are the perfect treat, especially during the fall season! They have a little zing from the apples, spice from the cinnamon, and sweet from the apples, maple syrup, and honey! They are a great warmed as a side dish for something sweet, topped on ice cream, or even a breakfast addition on top of your pancake stack! Use your imagination in the kitchen and they are sure to satisfy!
Fair season! What are some of your favorite fair memories!?
This year was a full circle year! Ashley was the 2010 Gratz Fair queen (feels like yesterday) and was invited back this year to judge the contest! We decided to make a whole family day out of it and support our community fair! Matt and Angie went head to head in the cake contests (it's our own friendly competition we do each year to see who's cakes and pies make it the farthest! Unfortunately, Matt's cake didn't place out of a competitive class of chocolate cakes, but Angie's Angelfood cake was awarded 2nd! We did the real fairgoer thing and the guys all hopped on the mechanical bull... don't judge their form... we've been told it's wayyy different then horses!
It was great to see a nice size rabbit show, lots of youth exhibitors, overwhelming volunteer support, and friends near and far! We may not have brought home the Blue Ribbon this year, but we sure did make some Blue Ribbon memories!
