Apple Time!


It’s been awhile, but here I am! Summer was so crazy that blogging took a back seat. I just wanted to pop in and post these photos of our afternoon project.

We picked our backyard apples yesterday, and got maybe half a grocery bag full. Many of them were too small or bruised to be eaten, but with Julia and Grant’s help, I managed to freeze 20 cups of apples. I’m thinking that will be enough for a pie, a crisp, scones, and maybe a cobbler. Yum!




I also shredded a giant zucchini from my parents’ garden. I had no idea zucchini could get that big, and I wish I’d taken a photo, but imagine a whiffle ball bat. I got 20 cups out of that one zucchini! Does anyone know any good zucchini recipes?

Have a great day!

    I suggest you try Aunt Blanche’s Zuchinni Bread; the recipe is in the Casane Clan Cookbook. Aunt Blanche use to say the secret to making it really moist, is to pack in as much zuchinni as you can possibly fit.
