We enjoyed some very beautiful fall weather as a group on Monday while apple picking. We were able to pick from a few varieties such as Macouns, Macintosh, and Courtland….. The Courtland apples were bright shiny red after wiping the coating off of the apple. Biting into the shiny peel with a loud crunch revealed the meat of the apple bursting with a crisp flavor. When you go apple picking, I highly suggest these apples for snacking on. We picked these apples for our Food Day apple taste test that was held on Thursday, October 20th on the quad at URI. Slow Food URI hosted a farmers market from 11-2. The following vendors joined us in our celebration of Food Day: The Coffee Guy, Good Harvest, Tallulah Taco, Bravo Pizza and Like No Udder.
