What is That?
I was going to subject you all to a little guessing game to see if you could tell me what was in the picture above. The more I look at it though, the more obvious it seems. So, rather than insult your intelligence, I will come right out and tell you that my picture is of apple peels.
I peeled about 40 pounds of Elstar apples today and made apple sauce. The sauce turned out quite tasty according to my resident fruit-a-holic, Jonah. Most fortunately, Angela loaned me the Pampered Chef "Apple Peeler Corer Slicer" which sped up the peeling process and spared me a mild case of carpal tunnel syndrome. If I hadn’t had that handy tool, I’d most likely still be peeling apples and not updating my blog.
I ended up with 14 quarts of apple sauce (7 regular and 7 cinnamon-spice) and still have another 40 pounds of Macintosh apples to go. Bring it on!
