Today we drove out to BJReece Apple House to do some apple picking. Everyone had a great time. We picked apples and ate them right from the tree (after we rinsed them and wiped them first 🙂 It was fun for the kids to try different apples of the same color, but with a different taste and texture. We had a competition for who could pick the largest apple and Cam won with a WHOPPER!
As soon as we returned home I washed and cut up my bruised apples and made a quick apple pie. I also bagged up a bunch of nice and juicy ones and gave them to a few of my awesome neighbors.
Homemade apple sauce came next.
I cut up about 10 apples and cored them with my apple coring thingy.
Threw them in the crock-pot on high with:
1/2 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
Stir once or twice until smooth
Once cooled I poured it in a mason jar and put in the the refrigerator.
