  1. Breakfast and brunch
    Here's a great recipe for breakfast. It's completely decadent, but still healthy. I serve it with a couple dollops of low-fat, no sugar added vanilla yogurt. It's good enough for a dessert. I make a double-batch and cook it in a 9 x 12 Pyrex glass pan. That way I can use up the entire can of...

    So. We have an apple tree that produced a lot of apples this year, after nothing last year. The apples are kind of small and tart, but not crab apples. We've also had a bumper crop of rhubarb - have harvested it three times this year already and on Saturday we harvested about another 26 cups...

    My MIL sent us home NYE with a bunch of apples... unfortunately they are red delicious, over hybridized and taste like nothing. I don't think I want to waste the time cooking them (they are mealy already) or dehydrating them because the flavor just isn't there. Even the idea of baking a pie...

    Well, now I have my first batch of apples in the dehydrator. I did things a little bit differently from my earlier attempt with bananas. I bought an inexpensive mandoline and used it to keep the apples slices a uniform thickness. I also dipped the apples in diluted lemon juice, instead of full...

    I'd like to dehydrate and sprinkle with a little sugar and cinnamon. Do I have to peel them? My RA hands just can't take that!

    BF just brought me a bunch of apples from his apple tree! I want to can them. I would like to can them when I am on vacation September 21st. What would be the best way to store them until then? If it makes a difference, they were picked, not on the ground. Thanks!

    As I write this we are dealing with rain and temps in the mid thirties. For the next two nights, temps will drop to the mid twenties with the chance of snow. The best case scenario is I will lose my peaches and early apples. More likely is I will lose all of my tree fruit. All I can think of...

    I sprayed the fruit trees with a copper fungicide today. It won't be long until the peach trees blossom. This time of year is when I watch the weather forecast with baited breath. Statistically, we get peaches one out of three years due to frost damage. 2008 was an incredible year for...

    It occurred to me while I was picking hedge apples out of the pasture that I had never heard of a use for them. For people who do not know, they come from a hedge tree or more correctly an osage orange tree. They are seed pods that are 3-4 inches in diameter and poison green.

    DH went to the store for me last week, and bought a huge bag of apples. We didn't eat them all, so now I have extra apples! I made 4 loaves of apple bread today, and stored 3 in the freezer for Christmas gifts. We still have plenty of apples for lunches for this week. My house smells so...
