choose your evil...
This weekend, the apples on our trees were ripe enough to begin harvesting. We started picking and without making a noticeable dent in the trees (SIGH) have made:
3 apple cakes
(check out Smitten Kitchen for this awesome recipe: http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/09/moms-apple-cake/)
3 quarts applesauce
We will defintely be making more of this!!
8 pints apple butter
I will probably be making more of this because 1) it is delicious and 2)it seems that I have some people willing to take some off my hands!! (if you are interested, just leave me a comment and I'll find a way to mail it to you).
And, just because I am sure that most of you don't really care about what we do with our apples...here are a few pictures of Max and Auntie Amanda playing around....he is such a character!!!
