Apple Days...

Pin It
My parents have an apple orchard. 
 Growing up every summer we made apple juice, applesauce, apple crisp,
 apple pies, apples pies and apple pies.

My dad's favorite kind of pie is, you guessed it
We got quite good at making an apple pie.   Sometimes they needed more sugar, or needed to be cooked a little longer.  Everyone seemed o.k. with sampling our efforts,

Eight people can wipe out a pie in one evening, and since there were plenty of apples, we got to make another one the next day!


To carry on tradition, (and to help use up all those apples!) every summer, my children and I make juice, applesauce, and pies also.

Vintage basket, pottery bowls, antique linen and a farm table.
I love to use all of these.

We add sugar and spice to a big bowl of apples and bag them up and freeze them.

We had a good time working together.

as one of my sisters said
"that looks too pretty to be an apple day,"
I will show you what really went on. ;)

We set up camp in the kitchen.  It was a little cooler and there were no flies.

We have three of these peelers.  The make the job go a lot faster.

Mixing in the sugar and spice and a little flour too.
(you also have to cut all the bad spots out.)

I'll leave you with a pretty picture or two. 
 And don't feel bad for the kids, they like to do this.

We did have fun with our photos shoot. :)
