Then of course I will be dehydrating a lot of them. I love to dehydrate everything! Here is a great post from The Welcoming House on how to dehydrate fruits and veggies.
Apples, Apples, Apples!
We had the opportunity this past week to visit my aunt's little farm and pick loads of apples. My children look forward to this every other year and we have been doing it since they were young. After picking (and eating) their fill of apples they got to feed the ground apples to goats, chickens, bunnies and horses. When we arrived home an hour and half later I found myself with fifteen large bags of apples and a van floor full of half eaten apples. Now what to do with them all.
This was the first and last picture of my applesauce making day, because it was a crazy, messy, long, not want to be remembered day. So I will refer you to the post below from my Mom's blog for making applesauce, and always remember that "Mother knows best". especially when it comes to making applesauce.
These are some of the things I plan to do with the seven bags of apples I have left.
We made these apple nachos for lunch. I saw these on pinterest last year and we enjoyed them so much we make them all the time now, we make them different each time depending on what we have and what we feel like. Today we had peanut butter, chocolate shell, coconut, and almonds.
I can't have a post titled Apples, Apples, Apples without sharing our favorite apple picking book. We like to read this before we go picking apples. It is so cute and even the big kids love hearing it.
My sister has one of those corers! I have been watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer recently, so I must admit, my first thought when I looked at it was that it would be a perfect torture device *shudders*.
You'll have to let me know how that vinegar turns out. If you click on the pictures of the projects it should take you to the original post from the blog I "borrowed" them from. I just got a load of pears from my brother's tree so I am going to do the mix of apple and pears for the fruit leather and maybe a little pearsauce. This time we'll leave out the corer and use a victorio strainer instead.
