Just a short Harvest Monday update today.
We had a bumper crop of apples in 2015, picking 8 bushels. This meant that we (well, not me!) canned a lot of apple sauce, apple pie filling, etc. We still have plenty of that, but we discovered we were very low on dried apples. Thus, even though we were not going to pick any this year, we changed our minds. The result, a half-bushel of misshapen, spotty apples. But who cares about that when they are just going to be cut up and trimmed?
A harvest was made of leeks, chard, kale, daikon radish, and mint to create a hostess gift for the Halloween bonfire party we attended Saturday night. Gardeners are weird people.
The Kitchen Goddess also made the dessert--spooky creme horn mummies. Very creative, I thought.
That's all for this week. Thanks to Dave at Our Happy Acres for hosting Harvest Monday.
