Apple Route President’s Message: The Apple Route celebrates a special region of Ontario. Only an hour east of Toronto by car, the Apple Route offers a vibrant range of activities. This southern area of Northumberland County, pressed between the Great Pine Ridge and Lake Ontario has, for 200 years, enjoyed a rich agricultural history that brought both prosperity and continuity. Nestled in the rolling hills of Eastern Ontario’s “Apple Country”, the Apple Route meanders through pleasant orchards and friendly towns & villages between Port Hope and Trenton. The core of the Apple Route follows signs along Heritage Highway 2 and “spurs” take the traveler to scenic Presqu’ile Park near Brighton, historical Lakeport, past Fort Kente at Carrying Place and connects with the Loyalist Parkway. Numerous craft stores and roadside markets carry apple-theme items. The scenic countryside, pleasant orchards and friendly communities along the Apple Route are a haven for visitors with an appetite for the simple pleasures of a slower pace of life governed by the land, the water and the seasons. From several harbours you can sample trophy fishing on Lake Ontario. Museums and galleries flourish in all the communities along the route and more than sixty antique stores cater to tastes from the primitive to the formal. Beaches, public parks, wildlife sanctuaries and public footpaths all provide access to some of the prettiest landscapes in southern Ontario. Presqu’ile Provincial Park is an enormous resource for campers and birders. All along the Route you’ll be delighted by the range and sophistication of dining and accommodation facilities. Spas, bed and breakfasts, country inns, hotels and motels abound; each provides helpful advice and suggestions for making the most of your visit. For more information on the Apple Route, and to get your free copy of The Apple Route map visit our website at www.appleroute.com or e-mail info@appleroute.com or call the Brighton and District Chamber of Commerce at 613-475-2775. The Apple Route will be getting ready for another great year. Membership in the Apple Route includes a listing in our very popular Apple Route map as well as on our website www.appleroute.com. Any businesses interested in becoming a member of the Apple Route should contact Lee Ostapuk at the Brighton and District Chamber of Commerce at 613-475-2775 or at info@appleroute.com.

Port Hope and area

Historic Port Hope is one of Ontario’s oldest and prettiest communities. Settled by Empire Loyalists in the late 1700’s, Port Hope, somewhat like being enclosed in a time capsule, still retains its old world charm. The Municipality of Port Hope encompasses the quaint rural villages of Port Britain, Wesleyville, Welcome, Canton, Osaca, Perrytown, Campbellcroft, Garden Hill and Elizabethville. Why not take a drive into the country and discover their charms?

Grafton and area

In 1784,

a treaty with the Mississauga Indians ceded a large

tract of land along the north shore of Lake Ontario to the British Crown. A number of villages sprang up along the shoreline, one of which was to become the village of Grafton. Originally called Haldimand Corners, the village was located at the junction of Danforth Road, (1800), the road leading southward towards Grafton Harbour, and the surveyed baseline road from Trenton (1790). Grafton probably has more buildings of historic and architectural significance per capita than any town in Ontario.

Apples are odour-sensitive and will absorb odours from potatoes, bulb onions and other strongflavoured items, so be sure to keep them separate.

Types of Apples Braeburn Orange to red in colour with a slight yellow tinge. Excellent for snacking and great for salads, pies, and baking. They also freeze well.

Cortland Red on top of a greenish yellow background. Sweet with a hint of tartness, this apple is good for snacking, pies, salads, sauces, and baking. Freezes well.

Empire Apples Green and red colored. Has a particularly sweet/tart taste. Mostly used in salads and excellent for pies as well as a snacking item. Good for freezing.

Fuji Apples Reddish pink in color. Was introduced into America from Japan. Good for snacking and for additing to salads. Good also for pies and sauces. Not good for freezing.

Gala Apples Yellow background covered with pinkish stripes. Is a cross between Golden Delicious and Kidd’s orange red (a variety from New Zealand). Sweet tasting. Excellent for pies and snacking but not for freezing.

Golden Delicious Yellow in colour. Sweet tasting. Not related to the Red Delicious variety of apples even though the names suggest it. Compared to Red Delicious, this apple is sweeter, has a juicy texture, is rounder and the skin is thinner. Baking this apple brings out its unique flavour.

Granny Smith Green in colour. Mild flavoured with a nice balance of sweetness and tartness. Can be stored for as long as half a year. Great for baking, sauces and snacking.

Red Delicious Deep red in color. Taller and thinner in contrast to other round varieties. This apple is the most popular for snacking with its sweet, tart taste. The strong flavour is found in the thick and somewhat bitter skin. Although a great snacking apple, it is not the best apple for baking.

McIntosh Red in colour, Sweet, juicy and tart tasting. “Macs” were developed in 1811 by an Ontario farmer by the name of John McIntosh. They are one of the most popular and top selling varieties of apples in North America. Varieties such as Empire, Cortland and Spartan are produced by crossing McIntoshes with other varieties. Great for snacking, pies, sauce and salads.

Spartan Dark red over a greenish yellow. An all-purpose medium sized apple that is a cross between the McIntosh and the Newtown apple. Has a crisp texture with a uniquely sweet flavour. A great snacking apple. Excellent for sauce.

Brighton and area

Brighton is

one of the fastest growing towns

in Ontario, with attractive housing developments both on and near the water. With its charming 19th century architecture, the town retains the spirit of the early founders who established some of the finest apple orchards in Canada. In summer, the town is at its busiest with tourists, campers and cottagers. People visit the area to fish Presqu’ile Bay for trophy walleye and pike or alternatively, head out into Lake Ontario for championship salmon and trout fishing. Boaters can enjoy shallow and deep water boating. Visit Proctor House Museum, said to be haunted by the Nix ghost, and see the ‘widows walk’ with views of the Bay, or visit Memory Junction with its railway memorabilia. Stroll along the streets and be delighted by the many architectural gems. Savour the delights at some of the area’s best eating spots. Stop off at Gosport and pick up some freshly caught fish at the

One of the fastest growing towns in Ontario.

fisheries. Come to the Saturday farmers’ market and enjoy the fresh produce, listen to music, stroll through arts & crafts displays or visit the many antique and craft stores that are sure to delight you with their unusual items.

Visit the Applefest in September, when Brighton really pulls out all the stops to celebrate the harvesting of the apples in grand style! In Brighton you’ll find one of nature’s outstanding gifts... Presqu’ile Provincial Park. In summer there are swimming, camping, windsurfing, diving, nature programs... a host of activities for the day tripper or camper, including a Heritage Centre at the oldest operating lighthouse on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Each spring tens of thousands of ducks rest here on their journey further north. As well, more than 300 bird species make Presqu’ile a “hot spot” for birders. In the winter there are cross-country skiing trails for the enthusiast. Elsewhere along the Lake Ontario shore, Brighton offers superb camping and other family attractions, Speedway Park, mini-golf & go-karts, botanical gardens and numerous garden centers to name a few.
