APPLES !!!!

I'm not sure what number video this is, as I stopped counting after I hit the fourth one. If you want to catch up, click the video series below.

Now onto today's post. APPLES !!!! Here in Northwestern PA, we're getting fresh local apples and that means my apron's on and the oven is ready. Bake, bake, bake, bake.

Here are our finds. I forgot to show the honkin' huge local raw honey, jar. It's almost as big as Bug, and just about as heavy.

  1. Early means they're not quite ripe?
    Give me a box of Hot Tamales and I'll race Tim.

  2. You've really got a handle on that video thing now. Love fresh apples, but hate applesauce! Don't know why? Odd isn't it. :)

  3. We used to grow translucents when I was a kiddo growing up outside of Philly (lo those many years ago.) Now in Central Pa, I can't wait for the jonagolds to be ripe!!

    Love the video. Seeing those apples stacked like that really took me back. Gotta go check out the rest of your vids. :)

    1. I checked the chart, for us here, not Until October at Apple castle for the jonagolds. So many fun options though.

      Glad it took you back. That is super cool.

  7. Just yesterday my husband came home with a big bucket of apples from some trees in our neighbourhood. Nobody seems to want to pick them these days.

  14. I am not a big fan of apples either, but unlike Yolanda, I do like apple sauce, especially with pork. I can't stand cider which is a big thing in the UK.

    1. Hot or cold apple cider is a big thing where I live. They fresh press it at the local fairs. So yummy.

      But I don't know if that's the same as the cider you mean or not?

      Glad you got your appointment for early September. Sorry about the roads. They do that here too, nutso.

    3. Thank you, yes, I know. I speak about it in an upcoming video on making dig food, using apples. Must take care not to give the dogs, apple cores, among a few other dangerous foods. But much thanks for the note. Very important to know what we are eating.
