We peeled. We chopped.
We filled dutch ovens and two huge pots with apples cooking.
We took breaks for fresh apple juice making, steamed juice and pink sauce from the press. The kids cut faces into apples for dried apple heads.
Then we filled bowls with cooked applesauce and re-filled the pots. Several times. Soon all my containers were filled as was the counter top.
And now...I've got some in the freezer and will can a load this morning to put in the coldroom. I'll give you one guess as to what we will be having for breakfast...
Just yesterday I was telling my friend that we hadn't seen any deer by the house for quite some time and then this morning the boys came running in to tell me that Mama deer and her two little ones were right beside the house. We're wondering if they were tempted by the scent of all those apple peelings in the compost bin...after all, who doesn't love fresh apples. ;-)
