I just got through putting ten pounds of apples through the apple peeler, corer, slicer! They are on the stove cooking down to what I hope will be a delicious applesauce! Can you believe that I've never made applesauce? Well, it's true, today is my first time. It's almost like making apple butter. I'm using the recipe in the Ball Blue Book for applesauce and I'm canning it in half pint jars. I don't think we'll eat much at a time so that way it won't get old.
The weather is very, very windy today! It's warm, though, but things are moving around on the porch so much it's scaring my little dog! I just hope the canopy doesn't get blown away! There's been several strong gusts that could have taken it down.
The weather has caused the hens to lay again and I'm getting 4-6 eggs daily. I have an abundance of eggs and I saw a recipe for Gruyere puffs. I just don't know where in this town to find Gruyere cheese! I thought Aldi would have it since they carry a variety of cheeses during the holidays, but they don't have it. If we had a Publix, they probably have it. Guess I'll have to drive 50 minutes or so just to get some cheese! Well, I don't HAVE to make the puffs, I'd just like to. If I go to Birmingham, I don't usually go for just one item. I'll have a list. I'm really wanting to get more into herbal and aromatherapy type cures for common ailments, so the essential oils I can't find locally will have to be purchased at Whole Foods. I really like that store! I do have to budget when I go there because I could spend a ton! We budget anyway, so no worries.
I'm learning so much from reading ya'lls blogs and other's on the web! I appreciate you taking the time to post, and to read mine as well! I also appreciate the nice comments you leave! Have a great weekend! Blessings from Bama!
