We gave our tree a good pruning last spring, so the harvest wasn't as bountiful as last year, but I think the quality will be better. For some reason, after a few weeks in storage, last year's crop turned mushy (in previous years we've been able to store them for months!).
Home grown apples are not perfect in shape, sometimes there are a few worms, sometimes birds have reached them before you, but once in awhile you pick the perfect apple. Not a blemish, and absolutely delicious!
Here's our harvest this year, soon to be turned into juice and pie filling! What are your favourite apple recipes? I'd love it if you would share them with me!
With the season, come the wasps too! Our trap is so busy--we empty it every day right now! Homemade apple juice really attracts them...
