Sunday was apple day. With frost on the way we wanted to get the apples picked.
The old tree is awfully old and in terrible shape. We lost half of to wind a couple years ago. Everyone has told up to just chop down the rest but it is still producing apples. This year, they are especially large. In the photo below it shows three apples. They are almost softball size. I pealed the three of them and they made 7 cups of apples!
In the evening Hubby and I peeled and peeled. He used the Pampered Chef peeler that I have.
Sadly, I ended up peeling many by hand. The peeler just doesn’t cut up really large apples. That’s okay though, I appreciate any help I can get.
We ended up peeling 11 gallons. One gallon went in to an apple crisp and the other 10 gallons went into the freezer. We have about that many more to do but by the time we were done in was 9 pm and I was already pooped…I had another not so relaxing weekend.
