Apple Picking Time
Saturday, the whole family went apple picking. I really enjoy this traditional outing especially since it is much easier than the tradition my parents always had: strawberry picking. The first time we went apple picking, I thought it would take forever, but really the apple are at a great height and apples are much bigger than berries so it only takes a short time to fill a bushel. It is very economical to do the picking yourself as well. In the apple house, there were some apples that were $12 for a 1/4 of a bushel and went you picked them yourself, it was $19 for a bushel no matter what kind of apple. We got a good variety. Now, what to do with close to a bushel of apples? Yesterday, we made two apple pies and I'd like to find a good recipe for an oatmeal/apple crisp that can be done in the slow-cooker. Anyone got one...Kathy? I'm thinking apple sauce might be fun to make and looking for a good recipe that for cookies that I could throw some apples into.
