An Apple a Day

We went to the farm this past weekend.  Job #1 was to clean up the apple tree.

We love apple season – crisp air, sweatshirts…

Today, I froze 48 cups of peeled sliced apples, and maybe made it through half of what we brought home.  There is nothing better than warm apple crisp in the winter and we are ready!

Apple Crisp (from Carol)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup flour
