Hip Hip Horray!
But my what a busy time it is! Missy and I have been busy this morning shelling beans
Hubby had been away for nearly a week (coming home for the weekend) so the children and I made apple sauce thanks to a wonderful recipe from a very dear friend! Of course I forgot to turn the stove down before hopping into the shower and came out the the heady aroma of burnt sauce! The bottom of the pot was thick with a layer of burnt on stuff and I thought it ruined but throwing in a great deal of baking powder and letting it sit for a week has done wonders in lifting it all off and it saved our pot!
Mum B has an amazing contraption from England she calls a "mully" and it helped in the completion of the entire bushel of apples.
You cook the apples WITH the skins on
Then with some turns of the crank the sauce is separated from the skins
and voila yummy apple sauce!
Oh how I adore Fall!
