Summer days are busy!
Today we were given a bushel of summer apples, which I turned into apple pie filling. I canned them, so now I have ready-made apple pie filling. It was a first for me to do this. They look good! I also canned a a batch of bread and butter pickles as well today. So it was one busy day here. My children were pretty good in helping me too.
My helpers peeling and cutting apples
Our baby girl; she was quite content to crawl around here this evening while we finished up the apple peeling.
I also have a bushle of peaches here, so I might be canning a few of those tomorrow. I enjoy canning, but I know once I’m done, I’ll be happy! It is rewarding to see the shelves fill up with canned goods. This year, it is nice and feels a bit more relaxing for me. Last year, I was very pregnant with baby #5 and she was due the end of Sept. So I really wanted to get all the canning done, which I did just days before she was born! Now this year she is crawling around. How the time flies…..
