"Some of the maidens waited for the pagan feast of Samhain to learn their lovers identities. To learn whether love lay ahead, young people would cut an apple into nine pieces at midnight on Halloween while standing before a mirror. The spell required each piece to be speared with a knife of silver and held over the left shoulder, one piece at a time. Upon stabbing the ninth piece, the intended's reflection appeared." -Rosemary Guiley, Encyclopedia of Magic and Alchemy. Looking to make your samhain more folkloric?

There are still a few brave hollyhocks in bloom, but it seems safe to say that summer is well and truly over. Our neighbors down the road at Chazy Orchards have a splendid display of pumpkins out front, and we are looking forward to enjoying their delicious apple brownies and cider doughnuts at Alice’s Birthday Party this Saturday! The party will start at 1:00 p.m. and go until 3:00. In addition to refreshments, there will also be games and craft projects. Children of all ages are welcome!

Apple harvest! Already made apple jelly, sauce, and muffins with the almost ripe ones. Now for some eating!
Happy apple season!!! I have no idea what I’m doing. All I know is I wanted warm apple goodness in my morning oatmeal. Fry them up with some butter, sprinkle in some brown sugar+cinnamon and then a small amount of vanilla. I can’t even tell you what recipe I used because I just threw in whatever sounded good! It came out sooooo good. 🤤
Got any good apple recipes for me to try tomorrow?

Our crop this year has been huge!
My family LOVES fruit but I think apples are the favorite. We go through about 6 pounds of apples a week. No, I am not exaggerating! When my mom started working for the local apple orchard I was overjoyed as I knew apples and cider would be in abundance! She just dropped off these tasty and fresh varieties this morning. I guess we now have apple delivery! #apples #welovefruit #appleorchard
