The Winner and Apples

You've heard people say, "I need a vacation to rest from my vacation" haven't you? Well, that's how I feel about the weekend. I need a weekend to rest from my weekend. 

Seriously. Our apple tree in our backyard had grundles and grundles of apples this year. Hubby and Son picked all those they could reach from the tallest ladders. I'm afraid of heights, so I was in the house canning apple butter and apple pie filling. I found this awesome apple butter recipe at Simply Canning and it was the best I've ever tasted. Because I have three more buckets filled with apples I'm going to make more. So if you have an apple tree that has given you an abundant crop, check out that site for the recipe and other things you can make with apples. I think I'll make applesauce as well.

Do you have an apple recipe you recommend? Like I said, I have a lot of apples.

Okay now for what you've all been waiting for . . . the winner of the book Pocket of Guilt by Dora Lee Thompson

is Em Fawcett!!!

Em please email me at kathiorampeterson(at)yahoo(dot)com.

And so ends the book drawings. It's been fun, and I hope all those who won a book has enjoyed them.

 Oh and don't forget to share an idea of what I can do with the rest of my apples. :)



  1. I'm jealous of all your apples! I keep looking at buying a canning kit, but I'm slightly intimidated. I'm also worried I won't have anything to actually "can" since I live in the city and live alone. But apple butter sounds amazing!

  2. Trish,
    Wish I could send you some apple butter. :) I used a steamer when I processed the batch. A steamer is much easier to use than a pressure cooker and takes half the time. Thanks for stopping by. :)

  3. Me and my four kids spent 5 1/2 hours making apple sauce yesterday. It turned out wonderful! I also made an apple pizza for dessert tonight. Can't get enough! I'll it to you.

  4. My daughter picked all our apples off our tree last weekend. There are so many of them (and they are all tiny), that I don't know what to do with them all.

  5. Christina:
    Apple pizza!!! Please share. It sounds awesome.

    I'm doing applesauce this weekend. It's slow going by myself.Thank heavens for apple peelers that core and slice at the same time.

  6. Carolyn,
    Apple butter is a good recipe to try. Also pie filling and applesauce. I'm very intrigued by Christina's apple pizza. I'm hoping she'll send the recipe.

    My apples aren't very big, so I know what you mean, but sometimes the small ones have more flavor. :)
