Harvest Time!!!

Our garden is teaming with little carrots and peas and our trees are drooping with apples.  It's time to pick it all and make something of it!  So we made...

steamed peas with butter

and applesauce

To make apple sauce:

Peel and core as many apples as you can pick from your tree
Dice the apples and place them in a large pot with 1 cup sugar
Add water to fill 1/4 of the pot
Cover and simmer over low heat until the apples are soft
Use a potato masher to smoosh the apples
(I like to leave bigger chunks in mine)
