This is the best time of year to enjoy hiking with all of the wonderful colors.  Get outside

and enjoy hiking Haystack Mountain in Mapleton, Aroostook State Park in Presque Isle with

some excellent trails and Big Rock Mountain in Mars Hill.  Come see us for tents, sleeping

bags and backpacks for an overnight hiking trip.  We also have canoes and kayaks to rent!

Fall is the best time for fresh apples and pumpkins!  Check out our local school farm

on State Street in Presque Isle.  They have a variety of delicious apples to choose from, fresh

apple cider, wonderful vegetables, sweet homemade jams and pumpkins.

Diet and exercise are so important to keep our bodies healthy and strong.  Here is a

healthy applesauce recipe that you and your kids will love!

 

Fresh School Farm Apples of your choice:

5-6 cups of Apples cut, peeled and sliced into a pot.

½ cup to 1 cup of water

Bring apples to a boil and cook until apples are soft and mushy.

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Optional if you like cinnamon.

1 teaspoon of sugar

Optional if you like it sweeter (most apples are sweet enough that you won’t need the sugar).

Let it cool and refrigerate.  So good!

You can make a double or triple batch and store in containers and freeze them.
