Over Thanksgiving our son Buck and his wife Jen were home. They had a busy week and came in apologizing that they hadn’t brought anything….
They actually had. They brought me a goodie box along with a couple bottles of wine. For me…that was perfect.
The goodie box was filled with canned goods. They are busy all summer canning. The pies I made in the picture were made with their canned apple pie filling….YUM!!
We also tried the pepper jelly…also YUM!! They can WAY more than I do…and they are good at it!
They brought all the goodies in a wooden box he made. When visiting the Amish community near Hazelton last summer he bought some veggies in a peck box. He took the dimensions of the box and made some wooden boxed complete with the stenciling..one side says 1 US Peck. The other side says KRAMER.
The box is perfect. 8 large canning jars fit in it perfectly….It does say KRAMER on the box and I am a Kramer (hint-hint)….He did leave it here but alas I am sure that was an oversight on his part but isn’t the box neat??
I sure think it is.
He does an great job with woodworking and Jen’s a great helping with the stenciling.
I took the goodies to the basement put them on the shelf and filled the box with empty jars so he can take them back next time he’s home.
I sure love having resourceful kids…now days most people run to Walmart to just get a tote. Not my boy, he runs to the garage and creates something neat..and useful.

The box is awesome——-wow—the pie looks like the best ever…
You are reaping the benefits of children well-raised, loving and resourceful. Any mother’s dream! Your pies look so delicious, I can almost taste them! What lovely crust! Any chance your kids would share the canned apple pie recipe with us? : )
