We had a blast at the apple orchard last weekend. I used most of the apples while baking a butter crust apple pie, but saved a few apples for Mya and I to enjoy during snack time. I sliced the apples very thin and smeared some fresh almond butter on each one. For Mya’s slices, I cut into bite-size for her to pick up and chew eaiser. She has just 6 teeth in right now, and used all 6 for munching up food. This snack is great for at home. It can get a bit messy with the almond butter. Mya loved it so much, she had it all over her face and was licking her fingers. We enjoy introducing her to new flavors and seasonal combinations of food regularly.
Just a short drive from our house, we found a u-pick apple orchard. The farm had many varieties of apples to choose from. We gathered mostly Honey Crisp apples in our wagon. Mya was in charge of “inspecting” each apple and keeping the apples in the bag. We had a delightful time and now our freezer is full of apple slices in little portioned baggies.
