SPOOKY TREATS FOR GHOSTS AND GOBLINS

Halloween is nearly here! We have some local treats for your little ghouls and goblins.

Fresh apples are an easy Halloween treat for young and old alike. If you've decided to forego trick-or-treating this year, let the kids (and adults) indulge in decorating candied apples  -- classic Halloween decadence.  

For more trick than treat, try making mashed potatoes with a mixture of purple, blue  or red fleshed potatoes. While delicious, the dish comes out a glorious purplish-grey -- perfect for your little ghouls.

MAPLE-CARAMEL APPLES

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 10 apples, washed and dried
  • Craft sticks
  • Toppings such as almonds, dried apple chips, chocolate chips, coconut, pecans, etc.

Whisk the heavy cream, sugar, maple syrup, butter and salt in a large saucepan over medium heat. 

While the caramel is cooking, pour assorted toppings into small bowls. Insert craft sticks into each apple. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

When the caramel reaches 245ºF,  remove it from the heat and quickly dip the apples into it -- and then into your toppings. Place each apple onto theparchment lined baking sheet. Work quickly as the coating will harden as it cools. Allow the apples to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. These are best served within a few hours of preparation.

A Local Tradition

The mill in Burrville was constructed in 1801 and began pressing cider shortly thereafter.  For decades, locals have made the pilgrimage to Burrville for the best cider in the region.  

Now you don't have to travel or wait in line in a crowd for your favorite beverage.  We proudly carry Burrville Cider in three sizes. Buy online and we'll deliver to your nearest pickup location every Friday (retail customers only).
