HONEY HILL ORCHARD
GROWING FAMILY MEMORIES
A fall trip to Honey Hill Orchard just isn't complete without taking a little time to enjoy picking your own apples, raspberries and pumpkins. It's a great way to enjoy a family tradition and to also get the freshest fruit possible. On weekends, we offer free wagon rides out to the orchard and pumpkin patch. During the week, you can enjoy picking within walking distance of the Apple Barn Country Store. Make sure to check our Harvest Update prior to driving out for the most up to date picking conditions.
6 oz. pkg. raspberry gelatin 1 c. applesauce
1-1/2 c. boiling water 1 c. raspberries, fresh or frozen
Dissolve gelatin in water. Stir in applesauce and raspberries. Chill until firm. Super easy and delicious!
1. As soon as you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part apple cider vinegar and
ten parts water. Gently dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain well and
immediately pop them in the refrigerator. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria
that might be on the surface of the fruit. Your berries will last a week or more.
2. Raspberries also freeze well for later use. After rinsing and draining the berries, place them
in a single layer on a cookie sheet and put in the freezer. When the berries are frozen, transfer
them to freezer bags. Berries will not stick together and will be easy to remove from the bag.
