Instead of exercising this weekend, I worked on putting up apples for the winter. I completed 24 pints of apple butter (which my children feel is NOT enough) and 20 quarts of apples. I still have a couple of bags to complete, but I'm going to do those in small batches when I have a few minutes to spare throughout the week. My favorite thing about preparing apples for later is that they don't spoil immediately. I love being able to work in small blocks of time.
My mom has talked me into freezing the remaining apples. I have always canned apples, so this is a new experience for me. I hope the apples are the same quality as canning because it will be a lot quicker to do and a lot cooler in the house.
