With various bushels of apples sitting in my kitchen, it was obvious what I really needed to do today. The process actually started last night by making 6 quarts of sliced apples. Today my goal was to turned a bushel into sliced apples as well.
I tried using a hand crank apple peeler. This is a handy tool, but does not work well if there are soft spots or if the apples are too large. In the end I used a knife and hand-held vegetable peeler.
Peeling apples takes time, and with it being just me here (besides Olaf who is 2 and not much help in the area of peeling apples) this might take a while.
The boys get out of school early today. When Olaf’s mom asked if we wanted to join them after school for an outing, I jumped at the opportunity to spend time with my friend. Where are we going? … A local apple orchard. 🙂
Enjoy your day.
