Its apple picking time in western North Carolina and let me tell you they are so good this year. There is nothing like biting into an apple just picked from the tree. The taste just explodes in your mouth and the juice is just so good. And North Carolina especially the western part of the state is where you want to go for some of the best fresh apples you will ever eat.

You can travel north on highway 18 out of Shelby North Carolina and just a few miles north out of Shelby North Carolina you will start to see apple orchards and stands selling apples. Or you can travel west on 74/64 business out of Rutherford North Carolina on the Chimney Rock highway and you will find plenty of apple orchards and stands selling apples all along the road there. And there on the Chimney Rock highway you will see some of the most beautiful scenery on earth.

Travel west at least to Bat Cave North Carolina and you will pass through Lake Lure , Chimney Rock and then you will come to the little town of Bat Cave. You can find some really nice little Inns to spend the night in and you will find an abundance of apple orchards, apple stands selling apples and other apple products like apple cider, apple juice and homemade applesauce. You will find several very good restaurants in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. Be sure to try the apple fries and apple pie served at these locations. And be sure to buy apples to take home with you.  And what ever you do take a camera along to take photos as you drive along some of the most beautiful scenic highways in western North Carolina.

Apple Fries Recipe

I would strongly suggest making your apple fries out of Granny Smith apples for the most delicious tasting apple fries you will ever eat. You want to keep it simple when making your apple fries for the very best tasting apple fries.

For Your Recipe You Will Need.

1. 4-6 large Granny Smith Apples.

2. 2 Cups Self Rising Flour.

3. 1 Cup Sugar.

4. Cinnamon to shake on after the fries are cooked.

5. 1 Cup Whole Milk.

6. 2 Large Eggs.

You will want to peel your Granny Smith Apples and cut your apples up in long pieces like fries. Beat your milk and eggs together well and place some apple fries into the milk and egg mixture. In a bag mix your flour and sugar. Take your well soaked apple fries from the milk and egg mixture and place them into the bag and shake well to be sure they are well coated.

You will want a home deep fryer on 350 degrees to fry your apple fries in. Fry until golden brown and then place in a pan on paper towels to drain away the excess grease. While still very hot shake cinnamon on the apple fries.

And you will have one of the best tasting apple treats you will ever make.
