These tiny late apples were gleaned off of the ground in an abandoned roadside orchard out in Columbia County. I picked them up a few weeks ago and decided to dry them. They were so small that I left the skins on and used my melon baller to core the tiny halved fruits. The results were so delightful that I had to share some pictures. They’re sweet, chewy but not too tough, and made delicious use of an otherwise ‘buried treasure’ orchard.
