apple mania

Apples, apples, and more apples. We've been busy processing the great apple harvest of 2008. Despite our best efforts we still have a bushel riding around in the back of the van.

In addition to dehydrating, we also made sauce, butter, pie filling, and crisp. The crisp didn't last long enough to be photographed.

Your stash of preserved apples is impressive and lovely. And inspiring! I have two grocery bags of apples from my parents and am about to start processing them.
