Monday, the girls and I went to the pastor’s home to pick apples.

He has about 10 trees (I think) and they all look like this one.  We picked three 100 lb. feed sacks full.  I am estimating each sack holds 1 and 1/2 bushel of apples.  So that means we got close to 5 bushels of apples.  At our local store, apples are selling for $20.00 a bushel.  That means I have about $100.00 of apples sitting in my kitchen that were just gave to me.  God is good!!  They also gave us the last of their grapes-about 1 bushel.  Yesterday, the girls and I juiced the grapes they gave us and did one batch of juice from our grapes.  We also did a batch of apples in the juicer and tried a new recipe crockpot maple apple jam.  It is very good.  It reminds me of apple butter but has a distinctive maple taste.

We picked the last of our grapes today-about 1/2 bushel.  We put them in the fridge for today.  Maybe we will just eat on them for a while instead of juicing them.  I hope to do more apples this evening but I’m not sure.  We might have to wait until tomorrow to start on them.  I am wanting to try a new recipe I saw for apple pie using honey instead of sugar.  It looked really good.

Well, I guess that’s all that has been going on around here-just grapes and apples.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
