Apples are ripe and ready for picking all across the Finger Lakes region. According to the New York State Apple Association, fruit size and sugars should be excellent due to near perfect growing conditions this year. Strong bloom, good pollination, heat, moisture and plenty of sunlight have all come together making for an excellent 2013 apple crop.
Apples may be used in both sweet and savory recipes making them truly versatile. Although they’re abundant now, take advantage of the accessibility and availability of fresh, local apples before the growing season ends. One way to capture the apple harvest is by learning how to preserve them.
Cost for each class is $15.00/person/class. Class size is limited to 8 participants. Register early.
