The Apple Festival!

Stephen and I took Eleanor to the UBC Botanical Garden today for the annual apple festival. Apples are big business in the Okanagan growing region of BC and October is peak harvest time. We tasted dozens of different apple varieties–all of them delicious! We came home with some Aurora Golden Galas, which have an aromatic quality like crispy honey flowers. The Topaz, which we also purchased, are super crisp and juicy. They have a thick skin and a sweet-and-sour flavor. The best apple at the show was, by far, the Golden Gala, but it wasn’t available for purchase. Maybe next year!
