With that many apples, we needed to preserve them, because there was no way we were going to eat that many fresh. We had enough apple sauce and apple pie filling from last year, so we decided against making more of those. We made some faux mince pie filling (vegetarian) with apples and green tomatoes, some mini pies, frozen apples, apple butter, and dried apples. We also made some apple head dolls.
|When preserving a lot, this peeler/corer saves time|
|We put our apple butter in the crock pot overnight so it's ready to can in the morning.|
|These crab apples were for caramel crab apple jelly|
|Some apple goodies, with the dehydrator also making dried tomatoes|
