Apple Update!

After bringing home 3 bushels of apples, we have been busy canning, freezing, baking and eating apples. A few have asked how we have done on out apple do list, so I thought I would post a quick update.

32 quarts of applesauce
10 - 12oz jars of apple butter
12 cups diced and frozen
6 pie filling frozen
1 gallon jar dried
6 apple dumplings
6 caramel apples
1 apple crisp baked
and lots and lots eaten

Obviously not everything is pictured here, and believe it or not we still have 3/4 of a bushel left to take care of. So what's left?

6 more frozen pie filling
2 trays of apple leather
apple fritters
12 more cups of chopped and frozen
6 apple crisp filling - frozen

Hopefully, this will last the family at least a little while. I noticed the dried apple jar is already depleted a bit. Maybe we'll be drying more as well.

Oh and some asked what the going rate for apples is. Well we lucked out and went right after the first big wind storm and got beautiful "drops" for $10.00 a bushel. A picked bushel was $25.00.
