Sauvie Island Farms does have a field of beautiful pumpkins ready for you to come out and pick your own! We also have Chester blackberries, a few strawberries, sweet corn, peppers, six varieties of squash, and APPLES for you to pick on the farm this week. Our apples are excellent this year. We have Rome Beauty, which are a great cooking apple and a few trees of Red Delicious. Our Romes make great applesauce, apple butter, apple pies, apple juice, etc! They are only $1.00 per lb, if you pick over 10 lbs the price drops to 75 cents per lb.
Here's a great Apple Crisp recipe:
4-6 large apples
8 graham crackers
3/4 C brown sugar, packed
1/2 C rolled oats
1/2 C flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 C butter, melted
Peel, core, slice apples. Finely chop graham crackers (use a food processor). Combine crumbs, sugar, oats, flour and spices. Add butter; mix well. Spoon mixture over apple slices.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes
Serve warm with ice cream
