It’s officially “Sweater Weather”,the true “Goldie Locks” state of the Midwest where the temperature feels “just right”. With the emergence of cooler breezes, we may no longer be bobbing our heads to the hot, summer tunes, but rather, we are ready to take the plunge in bobbing for apples instead!
But as some of you may bob for delicious, full-bodied apples, I tend to bob for a different style of apple, although ‘full-bodied’ nonetheless! Now, don’t get me wrong, bobbing for apples can definitely be fun! But, in the post-Covid world, perhaps not. Not only does bobbing for apples in a barrel of questionably vengeful cold water cause a chilling shock to the system, but it also inevitably causes the uncontrollable release of saliva and other facial fluids; not to mention the release of my contacts and half hour’s worth of makeup preparation. Personally, bobbing for apples leaves me blind, makeup-less, and worse yet, apple-less. The sad makeup imprint reflection staring back at me from the barrel can also attest to this.
So what apples do I find myself bobbing for, you ask?
Captain’s Walk’s Door County Cherry, Wisconsin Maple Brown Sugar, Bourbon Barrel Brown, and Dragon Fruit Mimosa Ciders, of course!
The Hard Cider Series at Captain’s Walk is yet another great example of apple concoctions in the making! All of the ciders are all made with locally sourced apples from Kewaunee County, and are blended together to produce a crisp, smooth and refreshing hard cider with just a hint of sweetness!
With descriptions of fall narrating visions of crisp air, green leaves that are slowly beginning to change to red and yellow, the season is indirectly beckoning each and every one of us to get our fill of some fresh apple flavors, whether that be in solid, fruit form or otherwise! Taste what form will have you bobbing for more!
