One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2014—Delicious Mutsu

We drove up to Apple Hill on Saturday morning. The weekend crowds that would have normally descended on the apple farms for the fall harvest, crowding the narrow roads and farm stands, were light because of the cool weather and the lingering smoke from the King Fire. We discovered a new-to-us apple called a Mutsu which is absolutely delicious and which is a cross between a Golden Delicious and the Indo varieties grown in Japan. I brought home a bag.

I took the first shot at a farm stand that made apple pies with Golden Delicious apples. This box of Golden Delicious apples would soon be peeled and sliced for pie filling. I took a shot of the Mutsu apples after we returned home. I sliced these apples and served them for an afternoon snack after I finished taking pictures of them.

    Wonderful fall apple photos! Brings back memories of taking the kids there every year when we lived in Sac- biggest pies I’ve ever seen! Love the detail of the leaves being on and among the apples.
