Apple Orchard

Today is applesauce day. We went to Hall's Apple Orchard to pick some Cortlands, MacIntoshes, and Lobos.

We convinced Kieran to pull one off the tree--he wasn't so sure.

Running between the trees was lots of fun.

We picked thirty pounds!

For breakfast, we had buckwheat pancakes. The buckwheat came from Cherryvale Organic Farm and the goat milk was from Fifth Town Artisan Cheese Co. We used Gibbons maple syrup. Delicious.

Buckwheat Pancakes

1 cup buckwheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp maple syrup
dash of salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tbsp melted butter

In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, bp, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, syrup, and milk. Beat well. Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Heat buttered griddle (frying pan) and cook until top is bubbly. Cook slowly on the other side until golden brown.

OR throw all ingredients into a blender and give'er.
