Crazy for Applesauce

The weather has been beautiful this weekend in Annapolis! The air is cooler, the sky is blue and my thoughts are turning to Fall. Especially with school starting in one week. How can the Princess be in First Grade already? It seems as if yesterday I was walking her to her two year old program…with tears in my eyes.

Because I love Fall, I felt like doing a little Fall cooking today. Granted, it will be back up in the 90’s later this week but Navy football season starts on Saturday, so it must be Fall. Also time for homemade applesauce…the easiest way possible.

The Usual Cast Of Characters

1. A whole bunch of Apples…2-3 quarts

2. 1/2 Cup Red Hot Candies

3. 4 tablespoons lemon juice

4. A dash of cinnamon

The Steps to Glory

1. Dump the above into a crockpot…it looks so festive.

2. Cook on high for 30-45 minutes to release the apple juice and melt candy.

3. Turn to low, and cook 3-4 hours. Stir occasionally.

4. When the apples are soft, mash with potato masher to desired consistency. I use an immersion blender to smooth it a bit.

5. Enjoy warm or cool…both are delicious.

Guess who had her first pedicure this week! She now wants one daily…as do I, Little Princess, as do I.

Some New Old Stuff…The Camp Edition

Summer day camp is a beautiful thing…you can usually still sleep a little later, enjoy a cup of coffee…and then, drop your child off to enthusiastic, trained adults who have planned terrific activities to create happy memories that will last a lifetime. It also allows for a solid block of time to explore all the antique stores without the constant reminders to keep hands in pockets. It is also just sooooooo boring to look at old stuff, according to a certain Princess. I’m sure she will have a very successful yard sale someday. I did find some treasures, I hope they make you smile.

A few more colored seltzer bottles! I can’t pass them up.

I love my darning eggs in this bowl.

I can always make room for more rolling pins…especially with red handles.

A relatively new collection for me…antique butter paddles.

One of the mentioned day camps…Kitty Craft Camp. Literally doing crafts surrounding by cats. Not my cup of tea but she loved it.
