Autumn Harvest

Autumn HarvestApple crisp with more crunchy topping than apples?

How about an apple pie with vanilla ice cream?

Maybe a pot of boiled, spiced apples – a chunky apple sauce – to serve with pork loin?

Or diced apples and cinnamon in oatmeal on a rainy fall morning?

I know!  What about an apple cobbler drowned in heavy cream?

Or I could leave the apples in the bowl for a homeschool drawing/painting class.

 

 

 

Will came home with a grocery bag full of apples from the neighbor’s tree – an autumn harvest as partial payment for his weekly lawn care job.

Now we have to (get to) decide what to do with them.

Maybe we’ll eat them, one-by-one, just as they are.

 

If only all of life’s issues were this difficult.

  1. My dad used to make apple pie filling and can it. Man, that was the best! Make a crust and just have to pour in that delicious filling any time of the year. :)

  2. Z,

    I think I’d like your dad.

  3. I remember the year I did a bunch of freezing and baking of bags and bags of apples. Once was enough. (o:

  4. Pat,

    I know what you mean. I got to a point where I thought, “I could process all these apples or I could read a good book.”

    The older I get, the less time I have to read all those amazing books out there. Besides, the canned stuff at the store is pretty darn good. ;)
