Points East: No better ‘Golden Delicious’ snack



Mom also kept large baking pans full of drying apples that she would pop into the oven when the cooking fire died down.

They would dry into crisp but very tough flakes in two or three sunny days and then be stored in cloth feed sacks to munch on all winter.   

So now I’m thinking one day this week I’m going to head on over to Brummett’s Orchard there on 39, just three or so crooked miles off 150, southwest of Crab Orchard because I hear they have No. 1 Golden Delicious for $20 a bushel and both Yukon Gold and Red Pontiac potatoes for $15 a bushel.  By the time you read this, I’m going to be drying apples on my garage roof. 

If you plan on going too, you might want to call first and make sure they haven’t sold out. The number is 606-355-7526.
