I chose to make apple butter for my preservation challenge. It came out amazing and was hard to preserve any of it because I wanted to eat it all! I had a lot of fun making it and ended up freezing about half of it. My camera started having a 'lens malfunction' about halfway through the process, so I don't have any pictures of the frozen product.
Here are the apples. To get the full fall experience, I made the husband take me to an orchard to get the apples (see previous post). Not sure why this next pic is sideways... but here they are cooking...
... and here's the almost done apple butter.
So, it turned out delicious. This was my first 'assignment' being a daring cook and had tons of fun making it. Hopefully, I'll have a working camera by next month.
Yeah, got into another accident... on my way to work yesterday I ran off the road and into a ditch. It could've been a lot worse- I easily could've rolled it- which is what I was trying NOT to do by not swerving back onto the road- I had the cruise on and it just happened so fast. I'm fine, just super sore (and feeling stupid) and I got a big gash on my neck from the seatbelt, but I'm sure glad I was wearing it. I figure I've used up my quota of accidents- sooooooo, enough of that.
