Flour and Fruit

Every fall, we head to Cowan Lake to spend time with family. One of our staple breakfasts is Buckwheat Pancakes made using my Grandpa Jacob's recipe on a 100-yr.+ iron griddle. After several failed attempts at getting buckwheat flour from Clifton Mill, Mom decided we should take a road trip to Bear Creek Mill. It was a beautiful fall drive as we headed into the country. We took a tour of the mill, got the flour for our upcoming trip, and then headed to Brumbaugh Farm. Nothing says fall like apples, so we bought a bushel of Cortland apples to make applesauce, some cider to drink, and some apple fritters for a snack before we headed home. It was a fun and yummy fall day!Grinding flour with a mortar and pestle
