This past weekend, we visited More Than Delicious Orchard in Woodstock. This was our second year there, and we were once again very pleased with the selection and the overall experience.
Years ago, my favorite place to go for apples was Wauconda Orchards, which was cleared a few years ago for another housing development. Wauconda Orchards was a real destination, with a huge store with a bakery, a petting zoo, and hayrides.
More Than Delicious is much smaller, but certainly more manageable.
Now we have a half-bushel of assorted apples, ready to be turned into all sorts of fall culinary goodness.
