One of our favorite fall traditions is to make a trip to an apple orchard that's about an hour from our home. Sunday afternoon was sunny and beautiful, so off we went. It was a little late in the season, and the pickings were a little slim, but we came home with a full bag. We have plenty of juicy, crispy apples to eat, and enough for a pie or two. Of course we took the camera with us! My daughter captured our day with these photographs:
At our house, when we have apples fresh off the tree, we like to cut them into slices and dip them in caramel dip. This recipe is so much fresher than the dips you can buy at the store and it's so easy to make. The hardest part is unwrapping the caramels!
