My first post here is going to be about apples!
We picked 2 bushels of apples last weekend and we are making pies, applesauce and applebutter. I am allergic to apples but that doesn't keep me from making all of this yummy stuff since once the apple is cooked I can eat it!
I purchased a nifty little apple peeler, slicer, corer gadget today and with great excitement my husband and I along wth our daughter put it together and began peeling, slicing and coreing our fresh picked apples! (I have a son too but it was late and he was asleep!).
I am also gluten-free so I had to go get some gluten-free pie crust mix but ended up with frozen, gluten-free pie crusts from our local Earthfare. The thing with the gluten-free pie crusts is that they are teeny tiny and it only took 2 apples to fill it up! FWIW, the apples were pretty huge though. I am using Granny Smith and Arkansas Black apples. I had never heard of Arkansas Black until this past week when I went to NC to pick them!
I will post pictures and recipes tomorrow. Right now it's time for bed!
