apples, apples, everywhere!

One of the things we did this year was apples. A friend of ours lives on an old farm. The orchard for this farm has gone “wild” over the years, resulting in a virtual forest of apple trees. The apples are not particularly large or attractive, but they were relatively bug and worm free and usable. we were able to fill the entire bed of our pickup truck in just a couple of hours; we made lots of apple sauce, some apple jelly, and we put some in the freezer for pies and cobbler. Yum!
