Turkey Soup Day! And, the last of this year's apples

11:05 AM

It was decided that today would be official Turkey-Soup-Making day! The house smells amazing, and I can't wait for dinner tonight!

We also decided to take a trip to our favorite cider mill to get some of the season's last cider and apples.  This is a MUST here in Apple Country (Upstate NY).   Today's star variety was the Russet Apple.  It's an heirloom variety that is sweet and crunchy on the inside and has a tough outer skin that hints at flavors of grass or hay.  I think they're LOVELY!  I bought a peck of them to make into apple butter later this week, and a gallon of cider.  They were only pressing this particular variety of cider from November 25th until December 1st.  So very, VERY limited and we were lucky to catch them on their last day!
