I put a note on the bulletin board at the post office last week asking if anyone had fruit trees which I could pick for them to call me. I received a call on Thursday from a woman who said she had two apple trees in her yard. One was a pear apple and the other a red apple. On Friday afternoon I drove to her house with my ladder and fruit baskets. I probably picked apples for half an hour then came home and got out the new apple corer - peeler I bought a couple weeks ago. It worked like a dream! No more having to peel apples by hand with a paring knife! YES! Last night I was able to get five pints of applesauce canned. Today I ended up with six. The applesauce is so good! As the apples were cooking down I added two teaspoons of cinnamon and one cup of sugar. Yum! Soooooo good!
