Last weekend my mother-in-law picked up a bushel of Jonathon apples for us. I gave my sister and niece each a bag of them. I am still working on ideas for them that don't involve pie crust. There will be pie, but not a bushel of pie. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Incidentally, I am a tad disappointed the apples came in a box and not a bushel basket.
this recipe from Ina Garten. My only criticism is that it is a bit too vinegary. The recipe calls for a "good" cider vinegar. Perhaps mine wasn't "good'. I just used the apple cider vinegar I had on hand. My sister is planning to smoke some pork for my nephew's birthday tomorrow. I would like to taste the chutney with the pork.
It is that time of year. The garden is finished. I took these pictures a few days ago. I wish my Swiss Chard didn't taste so much like dirt :( At least it was pretty.
Enjoyed another day off walk this morning. I could get used to this. Is anyone thinking Christmas?? This shrub appears to be being groomed for such a festive occasion.
