Cory Holman's Pumpkin Patch on the Old Mission Peninsula

Here’s a timely and delicious apple recipe from Georgia Holman, whose farm family legacy goes back several generations on the Old Mission Peninsula. Read more about that here.

Georgia’s grandson is Cory Holman, who you may know from Cory Holman’s Pumpkin Patch, which he runs with his wife Elise (and their dog Koni). The pumpkin patch is now open, by the way, so swing by and stock up on pumpkins, gourds, squash, and other fall produce (12926 Center Road).

In the photo at the top of this story, that’s Georgia on the left. I took that last year during the “gathering of the pumpkins.” Below are a couple photos I took a few days ago. Check out their cute little shed – Georgia was busy painting it when I stopped by.

Cory and Elise (and Koni) are also the new owners of Garden Goods in Traverse City! Read my interview with them here. Here they are with Koni, and below, with Georgia.

Apple season is in full force on the Old Mission Peninsula right now, so you can find a wide variety of apples at most of the farm stands out here (click here for a list). Georgia says this recipe works great with apples, as well as other fruits, like cherries, peaches and rhubarb.

Georgia Holman’s Apple Crisp

Part 1:
3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 scant cup sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix above ingredients and place in a lightly greased 9 x 9 baking pan.

Part 2:
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg, whisked
Mix sugar, flour and baking powder. Add egg and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle over apple mixture.

Part 3:

Pour over top and sprinkle with more cinnamon. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve warm or cold with ice cream.

This topping is also good over sweetened, thickened cherries, peaches, rhubarb, etc.
