Jim and Gina have been on a mission to salvage apples that a neighbor didn't intend to harvest.
The fruit trees haven't been sprayed in years, but the quality is still quite good.
Whatever else I might have planned to do is now on hold while we 'put up' apples.
J. brought out the gadget that cores, peels and slices apples with the turn of a crank.
I made two batches of pastry.
J. claimed the first pie out of the oven. A second pie was slated for friends with whom I barter baked goods for fresh eggs.
Three pies have been tucked, unbaked, into the freezer.
I suspect tomorrow will be a day of processing yet more apples.
