We have APPLES this year... LOTS of APPLES!! In recent years we've not harvested many apples from our two trees in the garden. In spite of the drought, we've been blessed with fruit! We don't know the variety of apples we have... old, old trees they are. They have a tart edge to them, so the apples are good for cooking and baking. This is the earliest we've been able to start harvesting and using them.
I've begun using/processing the apples, so the kitchen here is busy again! I made apple butter the other weekend. And there's been an apple galette... Will share more as the season goes. I seem to have lost my good recipe for apple butter. Searching online, there are so many recipes for apple butter, it was bewildering, so I used this recipe, Easy Apple Butter. It's tasty... But I'll be tweaking it a bit. Apple butter is soooo delicious on toast along with a cup of tea for breakfast... mmm.... :)))
