It started with a friend donating a half tub of crab apples. It seems that a lot of people can't be bothered doing anything with them...too small, or something.
Not me! I managed to make 3 pies (already in the freezer) plus 12 Crumbles out of the lot. Well 2 pies in the freezer, we had to "test" one. It passed!
Ready for covering, labeling and depositing in the freezer for something easy for dessert this winter
Laid out and ready!
I was out cutting off some leaves to let the sun at the pumpkins to try and accelerate the ripening. I just saw a big flock of Sandhill Cranes V'd up and heading south. It must be getting cold up north. We have come very close to frost the last few nights, like +2 C. Could it be they know something we don't?
