Big Apple


We have had a bumper crop of apples this year. Actually it has been a great fruit year all around our property. The only exception being the plums. Leigh did enjoy both plums we did get from that tree. This apple came from one of the trees in the front yard along the fenceline. You can see it is a very large apple. It weighed in at 12 ounces. We put our food dehydrator to work this weekend. It started out with the two trays of hot peppers, then one tray of tomatoes and then 3 trays of apple rings. The apples are now dried (About 2 ounces from each tray. It might not sound like a lot but it filled a quart bag.) and quite tasty. So tasty in fact that we did 8 more trays. They are in the drier now. Leigh also made applesauce. She has been drying herbs as well.
