Abby, Uncut

This is long. But if you're really into Abby, like I am, it's worth the watch! What a crazy, silly girl we have.

More Grandma + Park = FUN

Different Grandma, different park, same amount of fun.

Canning Applesauce

When my mom visited a few weeks ago she generously devoted an entire day to helping Alex and I can applesauce and make apple butter. We put up 26 jars. That's about 1/8 of the amount that our family used to do!

Here's my picture tutorial of how to can applesauce.

First you core the apples. (Yes, Alex is wearing a latex glove)

Then you cook them.

Then you mash them up.

Then you stir it all together. Preferably while naked.

Then you taste it.

Then you put it in jars and cook it.

Then you make apple crisp with the leftovers!

P.S. If you want to borrow a naked Abby for your next batch of applesauce, I'm sure she'd gladly agree to help!
