Who Knew~ Apples And Bonding With a 16 Year Old Boy

OK~ I had picked a few apples off of one of our apple trees. This is what is left in the box this evening.

I asked Garrett to help me freeze some apples for pies/apple crisp. He was more than willing to help me out, but unwilling to have his picture taken helping me!  It was a GREAT bonding experience~ Love it that my 16 year old son would say YES to helping me with this project. Tomorrow, after school, he is going to help me pick apples from the trees. We may have a hard freeze tomorrow night, so I'm thinking we should get the apples that we can.  Here's what we made!

We sliced 5/6 apples (per bag) .....3/4 cup sugar, lemon juice, dash of nutmeg, spoon of cinnamon and 1 1/2 TBLSP Cornstarch and placed the mixture in a quart size bag! Hopefully,we will have apple pie or apple crisp this winter!  Very easy project~ especially when my 16 year old son was willing to assist~ the project went rather quickly! And the clean-up...it was interesting! We had a little bit of cinnamon over here, sugar over there...OH well....After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. That's awesome!! I didn't realize you could put all the spices in to freeze them. I am sure that makes the prep time for pies/crisps SO much less!

    Enjoy the yumminess!



I always love feedback on my blog!
