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. For the most up-to-date pick your own crop information, please check our Harvest Update.
6 c. fresh raspberries, divided 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. sugar 1 c. whipped topping
3 tbsp. cornstarch 1 c. powdered sugar
½ c. water 1 graham cracker pie crust
Mash about 2 cups raspberries to measure 1 cup. Combine mashed berries, sugar, cornstarch and water in saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, whipped topping and powdered sugar. Spread on graham cracker crust. Top with remaining fresh raspberries. Pour cooled raspberry sauce over top. Refrigerate 3 hours before serving.
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.
Combine ingredients with mixer. Spread on cooled Pumpkin Squares.
