Twee Apples

These are either Paula Red, Duchess or Jefferies apples, bought in Michigan last week. The clerk scrawled the names across the paper bag so quickly that I can't remember which apple was which.

What I loved about these little guys is three bites, and you're done. A healthy snack for the easily distracted.

The applesauce I made from two of the varieties was fabulous (if I do say so myself.) However, my troops generally prefer pink applesauce cooked up from Jonathans.

We're fancy that way.

Every October when my birthday drew near, I'd always look forward to driving to Hannibal to visit my parents. Once there, a trip to the apple orchard was a priority. I loved their Jonathan apples and the pies and applesauce I made (Pink, of course!) when I returned home. I miss those trips, those apples and those two parents most of all! Thanks for prompting the memories.

Like Cuzzin I remember the drives along the Spoon River to enjoy the leaves and find new kinds of you think any applesauce will be left in a few days??????

It's definitely time to make applesauce here! The Ontario crop is largely a failure this year, so I'd better get on it right away. ~ Maureen

The deer ate just about every apple from my trees - unbelievable! Last year I had bushels of apples and this year I may have a dozen apples - two pies!
