Last week when I shared my Dutch Apple Pie Bread recipe I mentioned having more apples than I knew what to do with. I never shared the story of how we came across those apples so today I am sharing the details of the very first time I took the girls apple picking.
When my mom called me up and said the apples were ready, we were ready to go. I had told her I wanted to take the girls to help this year with hopes that they would enjoy the experience.
We started out picking pears.
Marissa immediately seemed a bit nervous/ unsure and I wasn’t sure how “into this” she was going to get.
Definitely not the best way to pick an apple tree, but it was pretty effective.
We ended up with 30 jars of applesauce 10 loaves of apple bread and enough apple pie filling to make 10 pies and around 20 jars of pear butter. And that was just what we did with our share!
About a week later all stocked up on apple goodies I probably would’ve cried if I had to peel another apple.
But when life gives you apples….
