    Finally got the apples picked. Several tress didn't produce this year so not a very big crop. Wet spring made it hard to keep sprayed but we still ended up with over 150 lbs. We had 3 varieties this year so it should be some really good apple sauce.

    No we freeze for pies and have already put over 20 lbs in the freezer a couple of weeks ago. Two years ago we had a bumper crop and dehydrated several dozen jars and we snack on them. We done some plain some with Cabelas caramel apple coating and then we dusted some with sugar and cinnamon. These will all be done for sauce becasue we still have apple butter left from that year.

    Love apple butter and apple sauce. Made some myself 4 or 5 yrs ago. There was a crockpot recipe I had found. I recall it was easy. Do you have a grinding mill?

    No yesterday we hand peeled and used the food processor to make apple sauce. We have an electric peeler but the apples this year had a lot of spots so it was easier to just hand peel. We made 38 quarts. We will finish this morning probably another 8-10 quarts left to do. I have used the crock pot to make apple butter from scratch. It was almost a perfect recreation of my late Grandmother recipe. I cooked it a couple days in the crock pot continuing to add apples everyday until it was very thick. I plan to buy a copper kettle to make apple butter outside and then sell it a long with my spices and jam to make a little side income hopefully next year.

    Awesome Bronc!

    We made some Peach & Habenero Jelly Friday. Home grown Habanero's and store bought peaches. I put 2 large Habanero's in the mixture to make 10 jelly sized jars and it is surprisingly "warm"..."warm" meaning a bit on the HOT side! But tastes great. I didn't bother to skim off the pectin foam since I mostly use it for BBQ glazes and such. Peaches, Habeneros, Sugar and a bit of AllSpice.

    I buy the some of the specialty jellies at a shop here in Houston. I love the Habanero and Jalapeņo mixes. Their Marmalade's are awesome as well. Good eats.
