On July 29, we had our first apple harvest thanks to Lynda and Darrell.
These delicious 4-6 cm applecrabs (cross between an apple and a crabapple) are a light green with a red blush. They’re crispy with just the right amount of sweetness, great for eating just as they are or for any number of recipes. My kids declared that they are picture perfect apples.
Now, what to do with 200 lbs of picture perfect apples?!
Today, we’ll see which community organization would like 66 lbs of applecrabs. And then, we’ll be busy making apple juice, apple sauce, apple butter, apple crisp, apple kuchen, apple cobbler, apple pie, apple muffins, or whatever else suits our fancy.
