I'm sorry I don't have much to share this week. Every weekend is spent preserving something. Peaches a few weeks ago, then crabapples, and now apples.
We have three different sets of apples. I forget what the big apple is. It is sweet and not very productive. The green and red one is a Harrelson and perfect for pies and crisp. This year it is loaded. The little green apple is from our wild apple tree and somewhat tart.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. I made and froze eight bags of apple pie filling. I also made a delicious apple crisp. I used the whole basket. There is plenty more. I think next weekend will be apple cider and caramel apple jam.
Mom's Apple Crisp
4 c. Apples
1 c. Oatmeal
1 c. Brown Sugar
3/4 c. Flour 1 c. Cold Butter cut up
1 t. Cinnamon
Use an 8 x 8 baking dish. Mix the dry ingredients and pour over the apples. Use a paring knife to cut the butter thinly. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
That is what I've been up to in an apple peel. I hope you had a productive weekend also.
