Apple Pie Filling
Prepare your apples, enough to fill 7 quarts. Fill your clean jars with apples. Pour over the apples this mixture, that you have boiled until clear:
8 cups water
1 cup cornstarch
Wipe jar tops, screw on seal and bands and process in a boiling water bath for 20 minutes. A quart is enough for a 9 inch pie.
I love having this on the shelf in the winter! It makes dessert easy, fast and delicious!
Since I stayed home today, I was able to harvest from the garden and just in time…some of my green beans and cucumbers got a little big! :( I feel so wasteful when that happens! Here is what I found when I walked in the garden:
I found this pepper plant at Ingles, a local grocery store. I had to buy it because of it’s name, “Costa Rican” …I have a special spot for anything Costa Rican after having visited there with my daughter! Someday, I’ll go back! Anyway, it finally has a pepper on it!
I am actually going to have some eggplant this year!
The second planting of squash is bearing now too!
I actually have a few flowers that have survived the dry weather!
I was able to put up 13 quarts of green beans from that basket! It was a very profitable day even if we didn’t get to pick apples!
