one of my absolute favourite things to do when fall rolls around is to go apple picking. so earlier this month when my friends ben and april invited us to head up to l'île d'orléans, a twenty minute drive from québec city, i jumped at the chance! here are a few photos.

the island is full of farms and orchards, and it is a great place for me to get local produce and enjoy the wonderful weather we have around this time of year. this was really wonderful, this orchard was right next to a beautiful old barn. i wish i had snapped some better pictures of the inside, but with the sun so bright and only my little point and shoot, this is all you get.

all of these were taken on september 19th, and we just finished our gigantic bag. it took us three weeks to finish our 20 pound bag of apples! we clearly overshot and should have gotten a 10 pound bag. instead we tried lots of new recipes, made apple juices and ciders, adding apples to salads, and of course making lots and lots of desserts like apple crumbles et bien sûr! des tartes tatins. i just simply cannot resist wonderful local fruit at such a good price.

also i don't think i've mentioned it before, but i started a food blog a little while ago. it's called "food i want to eat" and it mostly features recipes i want to try. expect mostly vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and/or raw recipes. check it out if you're interested in recipes.

Your food blog is awesome; thanks so much for linking to it. I'm vegetarian and it's always nice to find delicious-looking recipes.

I haven't had the time to go apple picking yet and I doubt I'll have the time before it's over, but thanks for doing so in style and sharing it on your blog! I love your recipe, one of my friend is now vegan and it's hard to do desserts that are!

Apples rule! Apple chutney is one of the tastiest things I know! I'm so glad I found your blog by random, it's one of the best out there! I can't post comments from my ordinary blog to here though!So I'm commenting from good old LJ. Cheers! /Karin http://blog.lilyofthevalley.se/

I've just discovered your blog and had to tell you that on top of really enjoying it, those shoes are pretty much the best thing I've seen all day (and, whew, I've seen a lot of great things today).
