This week, Elaine and I are harvesting our backyard apples. In our backyard, we have two North Star cherry trees, young Black Twig and Grimes Golden apple trees and bearing Dolgo crabapple and Rome apple trees. In the past week, Elaine has made two loaves of Rome Apple Bread, the last one with black walnuts, which is, by far, the best tasting one. Black walnuts make just about everything taste better. I have some in my oatmeal every morning.
This evening we hope to pick some crabapples. Some people ignore the fruit from their crabapple trees, leaving the berries to the birds and other creatures. That is fine to do so, of course, but crabapple/walnut bread is a taste sensation, even better than the bread that Elaine makes from the Rome apples.
I hope we can have some for Sunday lunch.
