I hope to not look at another apple for awhile.

A friend has a cider press and a small orchard, we spent a very long day making cider a few years ago, not something I'd want to do on a regular basis! Lots of muscle involved.

Friday I did 19 half pints of jelly. Saturday I did 11 pints of garlic dill pickles, 4 quarts of hamburger slices, and some jalapenos. Next week, I'm planning pickled beets, dill relish, and maybe some giardiniera if I have time.

Today I'm bottling 18 gallons of the 2012 wine... 10 gallons from my own grapes, 5 gallons of Riesling from Washington, and 3 gallons of Merlot that I couldn't find anything else to blend with.

Friend of ours has a big orchard, his cider press is automated with a bottler attached...I'll be smelling apples for months, he pays us for our help with cider vinegar. He grows Macintosh.

Did I mention putting caramel in some batches of the apple butter? I make my butter very spicey, so it took lots of caramel, but it tastes soooo good and cans well.

My brain is getting in the mood for fall foods, the temperature outside still reads summer! I need fall to get here, I'm ready for it.

Maybe I'll turn the a/c as cold as it will go, sit with a blanket on my lap and eat apple pie...

Figs are in. Freezing them now in order to do perserves later in the winter. Pears are about ready. Pear perserves and Pear relish are in order.

For those with apples. Have you ever dried any? Really love fried dried apple pies. Man my mother could make the best.
