The Apple Harvest
A friend of mine with a small farm up the road invited us to come and pick apples from some trees he found in an old long abandoned orchard on his property. We got so many we are still processing them but this is how we do it in these parts...
Get in the bucket
Ride up to the apples
Hope you dont fall
The "fruits" of our labor and of course Rose the farm dog
And poof, canned apples in simple syrup
And my favorite..curried apple chutney...mission accomplished
