Oh Apples, the joy of fall harvest. We just received 720 pounds red delicious from Flamm Orchards in Cobden, Illinois (http://www.flammorchards.com/). Only 15o miles away!! Way better than the 2000 miles it takes for a Washington apple to reach your local mega store.
We are making applesauce with all of it, yes, all of it. Kids love applesauce and so do we!! We make it tasty and simple then give it to our friends at Maplewood Richmond Heights so they can serve it straight up or make things like applesauce cake.
Apples simmering away with spices, citrus zest, sugar in one of our 50 gallons.
The crew peeling and coring apples.
