Apple season is more or less over now. Picking, anyway. My friend and I went picking a few weeks ago and decided that a half a peck per person, minimum, sounded too small. So we went with the full peck each. And then I had the genius idea to get half a bushel of seconds just for apple sauce, because that was infinitely less expensive than getting a bushel of the pretty ones straight off the tree.
Ha. About that.
We did the next logical thing when you have almost a bushel of apples. We made sauce. And butter. It was her first time.
We also made pie. Because that's what you do when you have almost a bushel of apples and there's vanilla ice cream in the freezer.
