The Apple Farm

We traveled to Etowah to visit Shultz Farm.
The apple trees were so heavy with beautiful apples.
We purchased some Fried Pies (highly recommended !),
some fresh Apple Cider (for drinking warm next to a Fall Bonfire),
and a bushel of apples.

We washed, cored, and sliced the apples.

We cooked and cooked and cooked them.

Next we removed the skins from the hot apple sauce.

We each ate a bowl of warm delicious applesauce (to ensure good flavor, of course).

The we used our canner to "put up" the fresh apple sauce.

And now in our pantry is a shelf half-full of apple sauce.

Now we have to go back to Shultz Farm next week for another bushel of apples.

We hope to fill that shelf completely. And maybe add some spiced apple rings too.
