How 'Bout Dem Apples




The best part of this outing was when Tiho climbed up a tree in an attempt to reach the prize Granny Smith beckoning to us from the topmost branches. He perched several feet in the air in a straddle position and got the job done. I was laughing too hard to photograph it, but I assure you, it was a sight to behold.

We are now up to our ears in apples. I'm thinking; apple butter, cake, sauce, crisp, pie...throw some other suggestions my way, please.

  2. I loved it when my grandparents used to dry sliced apples in the sun. They make great snacks later in the winter. Since we didn't put any preservatives on them, they would turn a bit brown when they dry, but if you do past the color, they are very delish. I read you can slow dry them in the oven for several hours if you don't have the outdoors.

  3. This reminds me of when I used to pick all the apples in my Gran's garden when I was a kid. We used to have LOADS and would make crumbles together.
