It's been more than a week since my last post, and I'd love to say that there's been too much food and wine-related happenings to write about, that I've literally been burdened with so much material that I simply didn't know where to begin. The truth is far less interesting, sadly. Work and other priorities have meant little time to do anything in my free time save sleep. I did hit up St. Patrick's Day in Hoboken last week, but that offered little of culinary interest beyond a keg of Miller Lite and Guitar Hero, neither of which is really appropriate for these fair pages.
We did get out latest delivery from the Applewood Winery Wino's Club. Last October we decided on a whim that we wanted to go apple picking somewhere in the area. We ended up at an orchard near Sugarloaf win Warwick, NY called Applewood Farms. It was a rousing good time, and we ended up with few dozen apples that lasted for weeks.
A commenter reminded me that the cider is of course very, very good. One of the bottles we got as part of the club a few months ago was a bottle of hard cider, and it was fantastic. The apple-based wines are also ok if you're looking to drink alcoholic apple juice. Be prepared for a massive hangover because of all the sugar. Thanks, Julia.
