Door County apples are ripening early this year, just like the cherries did earlier in the season. With apples now in season all I can think of is a nice warm apple pie and caramel apples. It is true that the fall season has not quite started for us here on the Door Peninsula, but with the cooler air that has just moved in it is hard not to think about all those yummy fall treats.
Most of the local orchards offer both fresh apples and bakery items made from them. For example, Seaquist Orchards in Ellison Bay offers a great assortment of apples along with many other goodies. The local farmer’s markets will also have an assortment of apples from smaller growers.
This cooler weather is perfect for baking, which coincides well with the early arrival of apples! At High Point Inn you can make a pie in your room or simply warm one up from a local bakery. We even have some extra cinnamon if you need to borrow some!
