The Righteous Russet and Portland Food Map have once again teamed up to organize the Annual Heirloom Apple Tasting taking place Monday October 8th at 2 and 6 pm at the Island Creek Oyster Shop on Washington Ave.
Have you ever tasted a Hudson Golden Gem, Fameuse, or Thomas Jefferson’s favorite apple, the Esopus Spitzenburg? Come to the apple tasting to try a wide range apples handpicked in New England’s orchards and learn more about this iconic fall fruit from apple columnist Sean Turley.
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, the event will also include apple-based treats prepared by chefs and bakers from several local establishments.
