Canning Apples

It has been weeks since I last blogged and here is one of the reasons why. We have had a wonderful crop this year of apples, plumbs, apricots, citrus and figs. I did take the time to can some apples and they turned out pretty good. I saved the one apple that had a heart shaped bruise on it so I could picture it with the canned apple sauce.
I learned to love doing things like canning from my grandmothers. Pickles and Chow Chow from my Gran Butler, Jelly and fruit from my Grandma Ollerton. I loved learning these skills and I love remembering the times I spent with them.
