Orchard is in Bloom! + A Recipe
See if you can identify the blossoms? I love this time of year when new life is so abundant. I love to walk through the fruit trees and hear the bees buzzing and smell the soft scents floating in the breeze of all the fruit trees (albeit lately the breezes have been anything but soft and the scents are almost being completely masked by the scent of the spring rains). So tonight as I was out taking these few photos before the blossoms all disappear the following recipe came to mind!
Family Favorite Apple Crisp
10 baking apples peeled, cored and sliced
1 c. brown sugar (although I don't use quite that much)
1 c. regular oatmeal
1 c. flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 stick butter, softened
1/2 c. apple juice
Preheat oven 375*
Put half of the apples in a greased 9x13 pan. Blend together remaining ingredients, except the juice. Crumble 1/2 the flour mixture over the top of apples. Repeat. Pour the juice over the top and bake for 35 to 40 minutes! Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream.
PS from top to bottom cherry, peach and apple! Stay tuned I will try to post my family's favorite peach and cherry recipes later this week!
