Where have I been? Busy, like so many of you. You guys have been shopping like crazy and I am trying to keep up with your orders. That is not a complaint but a Thank you! Some of you have written they are gifts for others and some are shopping for themselves. Hey, nothing wrong with that...
About 2 weeks ago, I drove up to north Georgia to visit an apple farm. They had some Stayman Winesaps and Fuji apples that looked delightful. I bought 3 - 1/2 bushels - came home and put up about 8 gallon size
freezer bags of apples pie mix and 14 pints of applesauce. These apples were so sweet that I used no sugar at all in either the pie stuff or the applesauce.
I use my great grandmother's apple grinder that was passed right on down to me. The wooden "oar" is thinned out from so much use but I treasure it. However, if I am making slightly chunky sauce, I just use a tater masher.
Not only that, but I have been very busy ordering new yarns and goodies for the shop. Hope your holiday season is going great.
