We got a hold of 5 bushels of apples from a friend of ours that works with Michael. (Thank you so much Jerry R. You are Seth's new hero)! These apples are wonderful. If you doubt me, just ask Seth. He had 5 apples for lunch yesterday and cried because I wouldn't peel him a 6th one! To get him to eat his supper last night, I told him that he couldn't have any more apples until he ate what was on his plate.
I will be heading to the store today to purchase more canning jars. I am hoping to make Apple Pie Filling to can. Now, I have never done this so I have been looking through all my canning books and I even placed a few phone calls. I think I have settled on a recipe now all I need is some time in the kitchen...and jars. I will also be making more apple sauce. My kids could eat an entire quart in a sitting if I let them!
I am sure many apple pies, apple cakes, and apple pull apart bread will be heading to our table in the next few days. By the time I am done with the apples, maybe everybody will have had their fill! Well, at least everybody but Seth...did I mention he LOVES apples?!! By the way, if you have a GREAT apple pie recipe for canning, PLEASE send it my way. I want one of those treasures that are tried and true...you know, like Grandma use to make.
grace and peace,
