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…


Look at this one, mom!!


Oh wait, this one is the perfect apple!


Can I eat them?


Refreshments delivered in a metal bucket?  YES!


Can’t miss any of them!

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)

Mix together with fork:

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup flour

1 C (-2T) sugar

1/2 cup cold butter or margarine

1 cup quick oats

6 Cups(6 – 8 med) apples, pared, cored and sliced

Combine these ingredients and stir into apples:

2/3 cup sugar

2 T. flour

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Grease a 10” X 6” baking dish. Pour apple mixture in and then sprinkle topping over apples. Bake at 450 for 10 min and then 350 for 40-45 minutes more until bubbling & tender. (Double for 9 X 13 and triple for 1o X 13)
