Kin to Kin Share the Abundance Harvest

Yesterday, my mother stopped by with about twenty pounds of apples from a friend's tree. Like me, she has a difficult time seeing REAL food go to waste so she shares the abundance.

Since I was really short on time, I quartered and cored the lot then tossed them into my biggest pots with a bit of water to cover the bottom. After a slow simmer for about an hour, I let the mixture cool then pressed it through my sieve. The process left behind a pulpy bowl of skins.

I have a batch of canning jars which are freezer safe so I bottled the sauce, labeled it and sent it to the freezer. The sauce was so thick I would describe the result more like apple butter than sauce. In any case the whole batch has a wonderful flavor and aroma. Yum!

The cores and such I gave to the chickens, who adore the red color and apparently the taste, too. I do love harvest.
