Sunday - The Fruits of our Labor

Suddenly it was already Sunday!

We took our apples, washed and graded them according to how they would be used: A was for eating and/or slicing for the dehydrator, B was for cutting into chunks and getting out the pectin and/or using for applesauce, and C was for composting (or goat feeding). 

I was amazed how easy the pectin was to make and will be trying to do some canning with this if we have time to do more apple foraging in the next few weeks.

Dan modified a couple of recipes into a delicious blackberry/apple crisp that was the perfect end to the weekend. Warm and gooey, he made it in an iron skillet and baked it. So good!
