Apple Time!

Category: Pictures, Playtime – Mommy Rimes – 7:28 pm

Last weekend, miss R, Gramma, and Mommy went out to the apple orchard to pick some apples. I have the most beautiful shots of a cute little blue eyed blonde picking apples, but they are on Gramma’s camera, and I, being the computer illiterate person I am, cannot figure out how to get them to this computer. So, you’ll just have to imagine the cute pictures of a rosy cheeked little girl picking rosy apples.

After picking a 1/2 bushel of apples and splitting them with Gramma, we still had enough apples to make these.


That is an apple crumble pie followed by a few of our remaining jars of apple sauce. The pie turned out great. Little Miss R helped stir the apples and mix up the crumble topping. What a good helper.

After spending an ENTIRE morning peeling, coring, slicing, and cooking 15 lbs. of apples, I spent another ENTIRE afternoon learning how to can. I ended up with 11 jars of apple sauce. After one week, we have only 8 jars left. I’m going to have to make some more applesauce to keep us through the long winter.

You’ll also notice one of my favorite cook books. It’s the Blue Ribbon Country Cookbook. If you want some serious down home, full of fat cooking, this is the book for you.

  1. Full of fat cooking is where it’s at! I’ve enjoyed everything that Mommy Rimes has made, and even though the store bought crust on this crumble pie isn’t as good as the completely from scratch crust that Mommy Rimes made a couple of weeks ago, it’s still highly delicious :)
