Event description

Description

Have you ever tasted a Hudson Golden Gem, Fameuse, or Thomas Jefferson's favorite apple, the Esopus Spitzenburg? Come to the sixth annual Heirloom Apple Tasting to try a wide range apples handpicked in New England's orchards and learn more about this iconic fall fruit from the Righteous Russet (aka apple and cider expert Sean Turley).

Sean and the team will be scouring Maine, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont to amass dozens and dozens of the best varieties for you to try and compare. From the tiny Chestnut Crab to the appropriately named Twenty Ounce, apples offer a wide assortment of tastes, textures, shapes and sizes that are too often underrepresented at the local supermarket or pick-your-own orchard.

Our host, The Shop, will be running a cash bar during the tasting stocked with several hard ciders from across the region that are well worth drinking.

Complimenting the fresh apple tasting will be tastes of three dishes prepared with heirloom cooking apples by chefs Ilma Lopez from Chaval, Krista Desjarlais from The Purple House and Josh Berry from Union.

Free for chidren 6 and under.
