Autumn's perfect fruit


Minnesota apple growers report harvesting a bumper crop of crisp, juicy apples this fall. (photos by Vonny Rohloff/Review )

Victoria Valley Orchard owner Molly Papenheim, 83, rests on her perch near the cash register. Molly and her late husband, Don, opened the Shoreview orchard 40 years ago.

Even Pepper, a family’s black dog, enjoys a visit to an apple orchard.

Approximately 800 trees produce a variety of apples at the Victoria Valley Orchard.

A large hill between the trees at Victoria Valley Orchard adds to the picturesque setting of apple trees.

The wind catches and twirls a colorful balloon designed to scare birds that like to eat apples.

For a well-balanced lunch menu, try the apple burger, an easy way to add fruit and vegetables to your meal.

Apples and fall are nearly synonymous. They go together like pumpkins and Halloween, snow and sledding, and summer and swimming.
A fall outing to one of the nearby apple orchards offers more than a bag of apples to bring home. The trip can be an event -- a fun-filled day of entertainment for the entire family.

Minnesota’s Bounty: The Farmers Market Cookbook” by Beth Dooley could be subtitled “A guide to everything you need to know when going to a farmers market.”
For more than 20 years Dooley has been shopping at farmers markets, enjoying the colors and scents of the fresh produce, chatting with the growers and learning the best ways to prepare what she buys.
She shares her knowledge of locally grown foods and favorite recipes in her latest book, which was published earlier this year by the University of Minnesota Press.
