At any rate... I wanted to quickly tell you about Reid and I's weekend. We went to the Alamosa Farmer's Market and in a streak of crazies I decided I wanted to buy an entire box of apples and can them! So, we did! Reid and I peeled the apples, made applesauce and canned approximately 144 oz of the stuff on Sunday and Monday evenings. Not only that... we also bought a pumpkin, cooked it down and made roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin puree! And I must say, I am quite proud of us. So proud that I'm thinking about buying something else this weekend and making jam!
Enjoy the pictures!
Our bags of pumpkin puree... I'm not sure in the end that the work is worth it (I think the cans of pumpkin puree only cost a few dollars more than the pumpkin we bought). But I'm sure I will enjoy the resulting pumpkin bread!
And our final hull! Not bad hunh?? And I'm proud to report that all 16 cans seemed to have seeled up nicely. Of course now we have to crack one open and make sure it's yummy before we give it away as gifts to anyone... 'cause of course Reid and I aren't really fans of applesauce :) But we'll eat it on icecream and I bet it will make good applesauce bread.
