Berlin Orchards

A stray thought, in the midst of the current hecticness at work:

I know that a bunch of folks from the Camelot project are at least loosely following my LJ. I urge you, sometime in the next few weeks, to find some time to get out to Berlin Orchards, home of some of the best apples around. I was there this past weekend, as part of ladysprite's annual outing there, and was reminded of how lovely it is. It's a huge orchard, with a whole bunch of different varieties of really great apples, and perhaps the most perfect apple cider donuts in the world. Her outing is how I recommend doing it -- get a bunch of friends together, buy several bags for pick-your-own, and go wander. Taste some varieties right off the tree, and bring home a bag to cook with and nosh on for a few weeks. (And don't miss the Golden Supremes, way down in the back right corner.)

It's a fine afternoon out, and it's right down the road from the Camelot site. If you can spare a couple of hours, now is the time of year to get to know those particular neighbors...
