The 4 kids all played well together, the smallest ones would occassionally sneak an apple and we got a lot accomplished!
7 jars of applesauce (plus a half quart with uncooked apples)
7 jars of pie filling (2 of the jars were pints)
and each took 23 apples for our family. (46 left over!)
Lemon Sorbet-to cleanse the pallet (:)) Used my ice cream maker and it was lightening fast.
after we made these, we then split the remainder of the lemons (which were a lot)
I juiced my portion and ended up with up with almost 3 quarts of lemon juice! (plan on using the lemon rinds too)
Its a lot of work but always worth it in the end. I plan on juicing and dehydrating the apples from my half and she will be making apple butter. yum!
warning. all about my kids alert!
Jackson loves lemons but not on his pacifier (BoBo, as we call it here.) Please ignore his pantless self..he hates pants and eventually you dont fight it anymore.
