A bushel is a lot of apples.
I didn't quite realize that. Hmmm. Well, anyways....our fridge drawer is full of apples for lunches next week, and I made applesauce, apple jam and I have apple butter brewing in the crock pot as I type. And there is still more apples to be dealt with....but I haven't gotten that far yet. I also made green tomato curry sauce and bread, but thats another post.
I earned this beer, damnit. And can I say, typing in this blog and drinking a Sam Adams Oktoberfest is very relaxing? Life is good.
So first, I went to Gross' Orchard and spent entirely too much money. I got 5 pumpkins (4 of which will be roasted and frozen), a gallon of apple cider, a bushel of apples and a jar of peach preserves for my uncle-in-law for Christmas (hopefully he doesn't ever see this blog...oops).
