Rumor is....this has been the best apple growing year ever.
I believe it. (and I thought I was the only one with a surplus because of my bees)
I can't stand to see them go to waste, so I picked and picked and picked. And canned. And made applesauce. And pie.
I've told some people I was going to start cooking with honey this year. So I thought I'd share a recipe with you using honey. I don't know if you ever do this, but I will make something and throw this and that in, and then not remember how I made it or what exactly I did, and my Shug will want it again. So this time, I wrote it down as I went...
Now..here's the thing. I just peeled as many apples as I thought I needed. And I had a couple of pears in the fridge that needed used. And I had blueberries left over from blueberry pancakes the Sunday before. So on those amounts you just wing it.
Then I added the rest of the stuff, put it in a bowl and let it sit while I made the dough.
I might have added about three tablespoons of flour to the mix, because the original recipe calls for it.
And the rest of this post is for Buttons!
and attach it to a paint pole that extends and keep those feet planted on the ground! First bears, and now this!
PS - Tomorrow....HUGE tadaa post!
