An Afternoon of Apples

And thus ended 40 pounds of organic apples from Eastern Washington. I loaded the apple peeler thingy. Ming Wai operated the crank. Siu Jeun dumped the apples into the biggest post I own…and taste tested every other apple for freshness. Because he’s just a giver like that.  IMG_7483


  1. I read a recipe for apple jelly the other day that boiled peels and cores, and then strained to make the jelly.

  2. Mmm. What a perfect fall day activity.

  3. Random tidbit: If you make your applesauce with one of those Victorian strainer mechanisms, you don't have to remove the cores--the strainer does it for you! I only add this tidbit because I actually removed all the cores and did it the hard way for several batches before I found out myself, lol!
