We have several apple trees and several pear trees on our property. The apples are falling so I thought I better get out and save some of them. The girls took probably 50 lbs. to the field last week, and I picked up enough to make two big batches of applesauce today - 48 c. of apples when cut and cored.
I really enjoyed the whole process. The baby helped me put apples in the crate. Jude helped me turn the peeler/corer, and the oldest and her visiting friend taste tested.
I haven't done a lot of for-fun cooking, or cooking for later use, in a long time, and it felt really good. I'm not very knowledgeable about what to do w/ all this fruit though? Does anyone have good recipes for freezing/canning this bounty of the earth?
