5th Annual Heirloom Apple Tasting
October 8 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm$25
Have you ever tasted a Hudson Golden Gem, Fameuse, or Thomas Jefferson’s favorite apple, the Esopus Spitzenburg? Come to the fifth annual Heirloom Apple Tasting to try a wide range apples handpicked in New England’s orchards and learn more about this iconic fall fruit from the Righteous Russet (aka apple columnist Sean Turley).
Sean and the team will be scouring Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont to amass dozens and dozens of the best varieties for you to try and compare. From the tiny Chestnut Crab to the appropriately named Twenty Ounce, apples offer a wide assortment of tastes, textures, shapes and sizes that are too often underrepresented at the local supermarket or pick-your-own orchard.
Our host, The Shop, will be running a cash bar during the tasting stocked with several hard ciders from across the region that are well worth drinking.
Complimenting the fresh apple tasting, the event will also include apple-based treats prepared by chefs and bakers from several local establishments.
Free for chidren 6 and under.
