Forget the sugarplums. When fall kicks in, we’ve got visions of Honey Crisps, Royal Gala and Cortlands dancing in our heads.
Did you know that the moderating effects of Georgian Bay and the Niagara Escarpment create the perfect climate for growing amazing apples? Neither did we, and we couldn’t be more thrilled…
If you are passionate about apples, why not head to Ontario’s Apple Country this weekend and indulge at The Apple Pie Trail? Not only can you enjoy your beloved apple in ways you never dreamed of (Caramel Apple pedi anyone?), but you can bookend your visit with a hike or paddle, followed by a tour of local cideries or vineyards.
Whatever you do, can we suggest building a visit to Azzurra Trattoria into your day. The vibe there is homey and warm, and the food follows suit. The menu features local ingredients, and we’re praying to the apple deity that their market crumble with Miller’s Dairy whipped cream is apple.
Here’s our “don’t miss” pick: At Bonnie Dorgelo’s Jewellery and Paintings, local artisan Bonnie Dorgelo works with semi precious stone, Swarovski crystal and pearl and sterling silver to produce one of a kind pieces. Bonnie’s love for creative expression is evident in her work. Don’t miss her apple shaped pendant made specifically for the Apple Pie Trail. Bonnie hand creates each pendant so no two are exactly alike. Delicious!
