Having just finished our second season with Borski's Farm in Kaysville which was you're interested, the Blondes decided to look around for other sources of local fresh food and headed to Bear Lake Valley, known far and wide for world famous raspberries. After Labor Day, Bear Lake Valley tends to have less visitors, thus making it prime for scavenger hunts by cooking Blondes.

This year, we had our eye on the wild crabapples growing everywhere up there. We found an especially good looking tree that had not yet been discovered by the local moose population.

We couldn't wait to taste one, and were surprised at how sweet they were. Crabapples aren't usually known for their sweetness, but because of a late, wet spring they seemed to be especially sweet this fall. We'll see how they taste once we turn them into Ila's Famous Crabapple Jelly, which will be the subject of our next post....
