Just a few quick photos to show off all of our hard work. We finally finished the Crab Apples on Wednesday last week, giving me exactly one day to get ready for the Asgaard Farms Art show and sale during the Music Heard Up North Concert.
Maxx was way into turning the crank for mashing the apples into sauce, though Molly wasn't really keen on that particular division of labor. She did most of the real mashing, allowing Maxx to participate only when things were pretty much done.
We finished pickled apples on Tuesday and made sauce and jelly on Wednesday.
Apparently the sauce is REALLY good.
The jelly is good on a PB&J sandwich or toast with butter. Tangy and just the right amount of sweet. Everyone wants me to make more but I've got people trying to give away cukes right now and everyone will want pickles, too so I'm saying enough is enough with the teeny apples. We will pick some big, wild apples this fall and make sauce with those because Maxx can eat applesauce 'till the cows come home.
