An assortment of apples went into our sauce. Cortlands, delicious, granny smiths and a few others.
We peeled and cut up two huge bowls full. We ended up with many jars!!!
Keeping a watchful eye on the pot kept it from burning. It sure made the work load easier with so many hands!
At moments it was messy, but now they all know how to can !
Later in the week we all went to Barber's Orchard. It was the first time I had seen a tree full of apples.
They couldn't pick these... but they had to pose with them!
This is the way the Smoky Mountains looked as we were leaving... the morning fog had not lifted and it was dreamy like. We love it here and appreciate being able to visit. Steve's grandparents had a home for many years in Linville, NC...someday it would be great to have one too. A girl has to dream! I will forever be a Florida girl who is within miles of a beach, but those mountains have a pull all their own!
