Lessons From Apples

Beautiful rosy red certified organic applesauce
By all accounts, 2016 was a great apple year in Potter County! Here on Crandall Hill, we were excited to harvest apples of many varieties from our fledgling certified organic orchard.
Last year we weren't so fortunate as late-spring frosts prevented the setting of fruit.
It was fun to experiment with the different kinds of apples going into the big old stock pot that has served through many canning seasons. This batch featured many different kinds of apples, including some that lent their rosy hue to the finished product. We're going to enjoy some for dinner tonight!
