It's a beautiful time of the year to be at an orchard laden with apples and pears, just ripe for the picking.
We went to Bilpin Springs Orchard where they had a number of apple and pear varieties in season. I went for the soft pink Fuji and gorgeous Golden Delicious apples which were crunchy and sweet and juicy with every bite for eating fresh on its own. For cooking, I picked the bright red Braeburn apples that were sweet and slightly tart and less crunchy.
I don't know a lot about pears but I did get a couple of Yali pears to bake with. Also, the big round brown Korean pears looked particularly enticing, so we picked some of them too. What a score. They were absolutely delicious; great in a salad and works wonderfully paired with cheese.
Thank you for your wonderful comments on my last post. I am feeling the love!
