A friend was at a farm stand and called to see if I wanted apples. Do I! A bushel, please! I got all McIntosh. They were utility apples but they all looked impeccable to me! I’m dehydrating 1 peck (1/4 bushel), which takes about 6 hours. I just finished canning 1 peck in apple sauce. I’ll peel, sauce and can another peck today.
Amie likes the apple sauce for snack at school, so I canned 1 peck in all 1/2 pints. I just have to remember to pop the vacuum for her when I assemble her lunch in the morning.
